Walk Hard, the philanthropic journey from Alpha Tau Omega, started in the spring of 2009 with a simple idea: “Let’s walk until we can’t walk anymore.”
It’s been eight years since three young men set out to walk the 128.3 miles from Troy, Alabama to Panama City Beach, Florida. In that time, the chapter has doubled in size, while increasing the event’s participation and fundraising by more than ten-fold.
This is the story of Walk Hard, a philanthropy that shapes young men and supports veterans.
In this episode, you’ll learn how:
- to pull of an event of this magnitude
- to approach donors about supporting your cause
- a program like this affects other areas of a chapter
