That’s not all they’re doing, either.

During the currently ongoing Ski For Cancer Week, an expansion on their usual, wildly successful Ski For Cancer philanthropy, the Psi Chapter of Theta Chi at the University of Wisconsin-Madison has been putting on various events to support Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer.

From Theta Chi, Psi Chapter:

Ski For Cancer is already UW-Madison’s largest student-run philanthropy event, raising over $500,000 since its inception in 1969. Through a longstanding partnership with Cascade Mountain in Portage, Wis., SFC has offered southern Wisconsin residents the opportunity to support Midwest Athletes Against Childhood Cancer by purchasing discounted ski packages that include transportation to and from Madison, as well as free rentals.

This year, for the first time, SFC is a registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that will host seven separate events all meant to further Ski For Cancer’s original mission of raising awareness and funds to combat pediatric cancer.

Check out their Ski For Cancer Week hype video below for some more details about the event.

Aside from the five smaller events and the hallmark Ski For Cancer event that will be taking place this Saturday, the fraternity will be putting on “Shave For Cancer.” Benefiting St. Baldrick’s Foundation, Shave For Cancer consists of the Theta Chi brothers collecting donations to St. Baldrick’s from friends, family, and businesses in exchange for shaving their heads completely bald. I’m talking Whoopi Goldberg-eyebrows bald. Full Bic.

As of now, the fraternity has 80 guys out of roughly 120 shaving their heads, and they’ve already raised over $67,000 across all events with a goal of $100,000 by philanthropy’s end.

To those 40 Theta Chis who opted not to shave their heads: Come on, dudes. You know what you need to do. It’s for the kids. Get after it.
