Caring Community 4K Run/Walk: Every year in the Spring, Kappa Epsilon organized a 4K run/walk benefiting the Caring Community Foundation. The Caring Community Foundation is a local charitable organization that financially supports cancer patients and their families in the Triangle area by providing assistance with rent, utilities, treatment or other expenses that become difficult to manage during cancer treatment. This is an event that we host annually and all of the profits are donated to this organization. Our goal is to raise money to aid their effort in providing financial support to local patients during a difficult time.
Red Dress Cocktail: Every year in February, Kappa Epsilon collaborates with CAPS to organize the Red Dress cocktail. All profits from the event benefits the American Heart Association.
