AGD Teeters on the Brink of a Cure

AGD Teeter Totter Fundraising Event It’s physically impossible to be both teetering and steadfast. Unless you’re a member of Alpha Gamma Delta.

AGDs have been teeter-tottering for a third of a century—all in the name of finding a cure for juvenile diabetes. This fall, the sorority held its annual homecoming teeter-totter marathon fundraiser. “These activities have visible and long-lasting impacts on our personal development, our community and the skills of our group,” said AGD publicity chair Cara Olson, a junior global studies major from Omaha.

Theta Chi fraternity joined Alpha Gamma Delta in this year’s marathon. In addition to supporting juvenile diabetes research, money raised this year will also help fund a new costume for P.W., the Prairie Wolf mascot (P.W. took a turn on the teeter-totter to support the effort.) Sorority and fraternity members teeter-tottered well over 24 hours outside their chapter houses and Abel Stadium during the homecoming football game.

“No matter what, if you were in the chapter for four years you teeter-tottered through rain or shine,” said Jill Dolberg, AGD chapter advisor. “It ties all ages of the chapter together.”
