Our philanthropy is the Pi Kappa Alpha Firefighter Challenge. Every year this this event benefits the San Diego Fire and Rescue Foundation, by raising money and awareness for the city’s underfunded and underappreciated first responders.
For a full week every spring, we engage the school in activities such as a beach volleyball tournament, social media contests, restaurant fundraisers, various games on Library Walk and raffles. The final day is the main event, during which we host the large “Firefighter’s Challenge”, an afternoon where groups from across UCSD and the La Jolla community compete in events ranging from mechanical bull riding to zorb ball races. Last year we were proud to present our local UCSD Station 35 a check for $6000 to be used to buy life-saving personal safety equipment that the city budget does not cover.
