For the past 19 years, a sorority at Purdue called Zeta Tau Alpha (ZTA) has annually hosted a talent show called “Big Man On Campus.” ZTA works year-round to raise funds for breast cancer research, and it culminates in a talent show that features men from Purdue’s fraternities. Each male participant works with their paired sorority, their ZTA coach, the community, and a breast cancer survivor or patient that they’re sponsoring, to raise funds and awareness.
The participant who raises the most funds, spreads the most awareness, and wins the talent competition receives the title, “Big Man On Campus.” This year’s video shows an incredible range of talent, from singing to dancing, and even drumming! But how much did they raise?!
The grand total was announced at the end of the competition. The funds that were raised this year are going to The Purdue Cancer Research Center, the Vision of Hope Women’s Cancer Research Group, and other breast cancer education programs, like ZTA’s own national Think Pink® programs and the NFL’s “A Crucial Catch®” Campaign.
This year, they raised $124, 568.60 for breast cancer research!
The winner of the title of Big Man On Campus was Alex Isgrigg from Delta Tau Delta. Way to go, everyone!Whizzco
