Phi Kappa Tau supports SeriousFun Children's Network. SeriousFun philanthropy is all about helping kids. From their website, they say: "More than two decades ago, Paul Newman had a vision: imagine if children living with serious illnesses had the chance to simply be children. To just have fun. So he started a camp where kids could, in his words, “raise a little hell.” Today, we continue Paul’s legacy with SeriousFun Children’s Network, a growing global community of independently managed and financed camps and programs. Our dedicated team helps children and their families reach beyond illness to discover joy, confidence and a new world of possibilities—always free of charge."
Here at Cornell, we host events every year to support SeriousFun. In the past, we have held: Phi Tug, a tug-of-war competition; a See-Saw event on Ho Plaza held with Kappa Delta, a sorority on campus; Spike Tau, a Spike Ball tournament; and many more.
We have a large event every semester, but we also emphasize brother help with the community. Each week, we take trips down to the local Loaves and Fishes, a soup kitchen in Ithaca.
