"Hello, I hope you are doing well. I would like to inform you of a fundraiser event benefiting cancer awareness, research and treatment. Following previous years, Phi Theta Kappa is participating in this year's Relay For Life event, hosted by the American Cancer Society. As you know, due to the current circumstances, the event will be virtual. On behalf of our PTK team "The Skyline Striders," I wanted to reach out to you and ask for your help in donating to our campaign and forwarding our page to your friends, family and close ones. The website will be open until the end of October. With the understanding that these are unique times, we appreciate your contributions to this great and meaningful cause. Thank you.
