Root For Your Cause
Root For Your Cause is an annual charity root beer pong tournament held at Cornell University. The event is sponsored by Alpha Phi Omega – Gamma Chapter, a national community service fraternity. When registering for the event each team or organization selects a charity to support. At the end of this single-elimination tournament, 15% of money earned through registration is donated to the Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, and the rest goes to the winning team’s charity of choice!
The event is also friendly to spectators. There is music, plenty of chairs to watch friends compete, and we sell root beer floats throughout the competition.

Nate’s Run For Smiles
Nate’s Run For Smiles, a 5K race, was created in memory of Cornell student Nathaniel Rand, who tragically died in a swimming accident in the gorges in 2011. Nate was admired among his peers for his positive attitude and his ability to bring a smile to anyone’s face. All of the proceeds from Nate’s Run For Smiles benefit the Childrens’ Hospital at Montefiore, where Nate used to volunteer and spread his positivity among the patients.
