Derby Days 2021 has concluded.
Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us exceed our goal. We were able to raise over fifteen thousand dollars for the Huntsman Cancer Institute for research in women's cancers. We also raised over three thousand for Maddie McClendon's family to help with hospital bills. Your donations brought our chapter into the top 20 for money raised out of 244 active chapters.
Derby Days will return in 2022. Let's be the generation to end cancer.
After nine long years, we are excited to announce the return of Derby Days at Auburn University.
What is Derby Days?
Derby Days is a week-long philanthropy campaign hosted by every Sigma Chi chapter in the United States and Canada. Its purpose is to raise awareness for cancer and the need for cancer research and to raise money for the Huntsman Cancer Institute.
Under normal circumstances, sororities at Auburn would compete in events and raise money in their chapter's name. At the end of the week, all the money raised would be donated to Huntsman in the winning sororities' name.
This year, Derby Days will be virtual.
Your 2021 Derby Days Queen,
Maddie is from Dadeville, Alabama; she's a freshman at Auburn and a Pi Phi.
In October, Maddie was diagnosed with small cell carcinoma of the ovary.
She is currently in Cincinnati fighting for her life.
This year's Derby Days campaign is in her honor.
Together, we can be the generation to end cancer.
