Philanthropy

  • Theta Xi and Kappa Kappa Gamma

    Wildcat Gladiators

 
  •             Every fall, Theta Xi teams up with its neighbor sorority, Kappa Kappa Gamma, to host the annual Theta Xi and Kappa Kappa Gamma Wildcat Gladiators. This philanthropy was created to replace Theta Xi’s previous two philanthropies, Earthball and our dodgeball tournament. Wildcat Gladiators is a point based tournament where challengers compete on 4 different inflatables for the best time, and compete in a jousting tournament at the end of the day. Along with holding a tournament, Wildcat Gladiators is open to the public to use the inflatibles for an afternoon of fun.
                Each year we put this on to benefit the National Multiple Sclorosis Society. Multiple Sclerosis (MS) is an inflamatory autoimmune disease that affects the brain and spinal cord. It interrupts the body’s communication between nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. While there is no known cure to MS yet, donations to the National Society contribute to research of a cure and ways to better treat those with the disease in order to slow down its destructive effects on the body.

     

    Jousting

  • Bungee Cord

     

                In 2012 we put on Wildcat Gladiators for the first time, and we believe it has the potential to be a well known city wide event. This philanthropy brings the students of K-State and the residents of Manhattan together for an exciting day. And after all, who doesn’t love playing on inflatibles, slides, and beating up their friends.

                Be sure to look for us and stop by next year, late September at city park!
