Derby Days is Sigma Chi’s weeklong philanthropic event that promotes unity among the Greek community at the University of Maryland while also benefiting Children’s Miracle Network, specifically Children’s National Hospital in DC. We have 16 sorority participants during the week and will engage over 1,500 students during the event!
This year, we will be hosting many fun events throughout the week of October 24th-28th, including a banner competition, inflatable obstacle course, dodgeball, zorb soccer, a watermelon eating contest, and more! In 2021, we raised a record-breaking $55,000 and we are hoping to break our record once again this year in order to help Children’s National through the pandemic. Your fundraising will provide pediatric care equipment, COVID-19 vaccination efforts, research, and programs such as Music Therapy and the Healing Garden.
