The sisters of UNC Kappa are involved in a variety of activities here on campus:
We have many sisters who participate in the annual UNC Dance Marathon, which is a 24-hour no sitting, no sleeping event that is hosted by the Carolina For The Kids Foundation. At the 2017 Dance Marathon, we won an award for having the most members in a sorority attend the marathon! All of the money raised from the organization's philanthropic events throughout the year benefit the families and patients of the UNC Children's Hospital here in Chapel Hill. Lots of our sisters are on committees, are committee chairs, and we have had a few sisters in the past who were members of the Carolina FTK executive board.

We have a lot of sisters who are majoring in a variety of things from political science to education to biology, all of which have the opportunity to be apart of student government here at UNC. Each student is given the opportunity to voice their opinion on issues regarding UNC's campus and ways to make the community better.
RELAY FOR LIFE
Each year many sisters form a Kappa team to participate in Relay For Life's annual community fundraising walk. Each team sets up their own tent, and they stay up all night to benefit the American Cancer Society. There are various activities throughout the night and special walks dedicated to survivors, current fighters, and those who lost the battle to cancer.
As a part of our national philanthropy Reading Is Fundamental (RIF), our sisters read to children at E.K. Powe Elementary School. Each sister gets the opportunity to read and play with the children every time they visit, sometimes we even give children books to take home from our newest project Cover to Cover. We've collected books throughout the community to give to the elementary schools in the area and especially to our main focus, Thomasville Elementary School in the Piedmont Triad area.
