Mizzou AEPi RockaThon 2015

How impressed am I with Mizzou AEPi right now? I just walked into TFM’s kitchen, poured myself a cup of coffee, and walked back to my office to re-read the amount they raised through their Rock-A-Thon philanthropy for the American Cancer Society all so I could purposely do a spit take for dramatic effect, with absolutely no regard for the fact that this is being conveyed via the written word and not a single one of you could see it. My printer is covered in coffee. Still, it was necessary.

Though AEPi fell short of their stated (and ambitious) goal of $150,000, the $132,000 they raised still breaks the previous largest single fraternity or sorority philanthropy record — also held by Mizzou AEPi — of $123,000, set in 2013.

In the words of the great (fictional version of) Russell Crowe, “Take THAT cancer! And THAT!”

AEPi senior Jason Hoffman rocked away the weekend — all 63 hours — while his brothers topped off their fundraising efforts by scrambling to secure as many donations as possible.

With the help of the community, alumni, family, Mizzou sororities, and more, the men of AEPi reached their goal. Then, on Sunday evening, at Mizzou’s Traditions Plaza, they announced their total.

This is cool. #TogetherWeDid

Really just incredible stuff. You can see full coverage of the weekend on the philanthropy’s Facebook page. There isn’t much else to say other than congratulations and thank you, AEPi. Together they did.
