5K Run for Holly

My Kappa Kappa Gamma Sisters at the University of Kentucky held their Spring Philanthropy event the 5K Run for Holly to raise funds for Holly's House! The race was organized by Chloe Ward and all the members of Kappa Kappa Gamma! 160 runners/walkers and $2500...the event was a HUGE success!

I hope they will do this event again next year! I think this could be and fundraiser that will grow and grow!

My Sisters of Kappa Kappa Gamma

I was a UK Kappa when I was attacked in 1997. Each year, my sorority holds an event to raise money for Holly's House. This year the fabulous Philanthropy Chair, Chloe Ward, planned an awesome 5K in my honor.

Thursday, April 14, 2011, I got the opportunity to speak on the University of Kentucky campus! It was a terrific event and got everyone excited for the 5K Run for Holly on Sunday!

Terrific Speaking Engagement at SEPC2011

I got to speak at an amazing conference on Saturday called the South Eastern Panhellenic Conference. It was filled with amazing Sorority Women Leaders, Posh Panhellenic Peeps, and awesome other speakers!

I was so lucky and blessed to be a part of the Jean H. Wells Leadership Series- Omega Program. My room was packed with women and a few men.... they had to bring in extra chairs. I had a young lady faint during the beginning of my presentation but we were able to get her up and out of the room. She left in style saying "Y'all will never forget about this." I heard she was taken to the hospital to be checked out and I hope everything turns out ok for her.

The rest of the talk went of without a hitch. I felt so supported by the audience with their attention and even tears.

I got so many Facebook and Twitter Followers afterwards and even during :) The feedback from these people has been unbelievable. I haven't gotten to see the evaluations yet, but can't wait.

I want to thank the young lady that confided in me my after I spoke. She was so brave in telling me her story and I know she will find healing!
