HOUGHTON, Mich. (WLUC) - This good weather called for celebration, and also a little bit of service.

Today, the ladies of Alpha Sigma Tau, along with the men of Phi Kappa Tau, started out with a Tau Trot 5K run or walk and then hosted a BBQ fundraiser for charity.

The food was provided by Baby E’s BBQ.

The proceeds from these events will go towards the Girls on the Run of the Upper Peninsula and the SeriousFun Foundation.

"So for the SeriousFun Foundation that will help them put on different programs and help different families do events that they choose, and for the Girls on the Run, since there are a couple throughout the UP, we're donating specifically to those ones to help put on their programs and more so empower the girls that are in it,” said Tessa Mlinar, who is the VP of Community Relations of her sorority.

This is the first year the sorority and fraternity did something like this, but they guarantee it won't be the last.
