Sigma Alpha Mu
Standing with Matthew!
As an organization, we have watched Matthew grow from a cloistered kid to a confident young man. It has been a humbling experience for all of our members to have the opportunity to be a part of his and his family’s life. Through our involvement with the RU4Kids program and Embrace Kids Foundation we have been able to spend a lot of time with Matthew. Whether it is visiting him on his clinic visits or getting together to play video games, we always have a great time with him. In our time spent getting to know Matthew and his family, we have observed the great impact Embrace Kids Foundation has been able to make on his life. In addition to facilitating our relationship with Matthew, Embrace Kids has gone above and beyond to ensure that Matthew and his family have what they need in the face of the burdens that come with facing down serious illness. We are thankful for all that Embrace Kids Foundation does.
In support of Embrace Kids Foundation, and in honor of Matthew, Sigma Alpha Mu will be participating in the 2019 Rutgers Dance Marathon! Our brothers will be on their feet for 12 hours straight in order to raise funds for Embrace Kids Foundation. You can support us by donating to our team page. Any donation, online, check, or cash will help Embrace Kids Foundation support pediatric patients. With your help, we can continue to create a fun and safe environment for young patients like Matthew to come out of their shells.
