Breast Cancer Awareness & Education
The Zeta Tau Alpha Foundation fulfills the founding principles of our Fraternity by providing support for programsthat are educational, philanthropic and leadership-oriented. Zeta Tau Alpha’s National Philanthropy is Breast Cancer Education and Awareness.
Why ZTA Think Pink®
Think Pink® is the umbrella theme for all of our breast cancer education and awareness projects. Chapters distribute Think Pink® ribbons, breast self-examination (BSE) calendar stickers and breast health tip cards throughout the year.
Through our premier partnership with American Cancer Society®, ZTA is the National Survivor Ambassador of Making Strides Against Breast Cancer®. At the nearly 300 Making Strides walks held each October in communities across the country, Zetas provide assistance and focus on survivor recognition. Over time, we will help grow the survivor recognition program at these events.
Since 1999, Zeta Tau Alpha alumnae and collegiate members have worked with all 32 NFL teams to increase awareness of breast cancer at professional football games. ZTA is an official fan outreach partner of the National Football League. Beginning with the Washington Redskins in 1999, Zetas have helped spread the message of breast cancer awareness to over 5 million football fans across the country.
To educate, equip and empower our members to be advocates for their own breast and ovarian health, we’ve partnered with Bright Pink®, a national nonprofit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer. We bring the Brighten Up® Educational Workshop to each of our collegiate chapters. Interested alumnae chapters are encouraged to join collegians for this fun and informative workshop. We plan to grow this program over time to include Panhellenic women and others in the campus community.
During my time at Zeta, I saw how impactful our philanthropy is. I have personal connections to Breast Cancer, and I knew that I wanted to get involved on a deeper level. Running for VP4 was the best decision I’ve made, as I have connected so many strong and empowering women with our Beta Omicron chapter through my time serving. I love working towards our fundraising goals for the cause that touches my heart and the hearts of so many in Zeta Tau Alpha the most.
