Sigma Nu Bike-a-thon Raises Funds for Cancer Research

The members of Sigma Nu will take turns riding a stationary bike for 26 straight hours to raise funds for cancer research.

Twenty-five brothers from Philadelphia University’s Sigma Nu fraternity will ride a stationary bike for 26 hours straight starting at noon Wednesday, March 28 to raise cancer research funds for Relay for Life.

This year, in conjunction with PhilaU’s Sustainability Forum on the same two days, the Sigma Nu brothers will also be generating electricity to power their audio system as they peddle during the bike-a-thon.

For the 13th consecutive year, the fraternity members will take turns riding the bike outside of The Kanbar Campus Center one hour at a time during the event, which will end at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 29.

The bike-a-thon will raise funds through donations collected outside of The Kanbar Campus Center. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life, which will take place on Friday, March 30, starting at 6 p.m. through 6 a.m. the next morning.
