As reported in the 5

Beta Beta, the biology honor society, would like to thank everyone who
participated in their "Bowling for Uganda" bowl-a-thon on November 18.
The event was a great success, raising money for Hope North, a camp for
internally displaced people in Uganda. The winning teams in the bowl-a-thon
were from Kappa Sigma, 1st place (pictured in the online
edition); Tau Kappa Epsilon, 2nd place; and the School of Science Faculty,
3rd Place. Tri-Beta especially thanks vice president Jennifer Hendrick,
who planned and coordinated the event, and treasurer Christina Brown, who
provided invaluable support. Proceeds from the bowl-a-thon will go to build
a house at Hope North, which will be called the 'CBU Home' and have the
names of all of the participating organizations and teams painted on the

Enterprise: Raising Funds for Hope
North, an Internally Displaced People’s Camp in Uganda
North is a remote village in Uganda and is commonly referred to as
a self-sustainable internally displaced people’s camp, created as the result
of a civil war in Uganda. The Acholi people have been the targets
of this war, in which their own children have been abducted by the “Lord’s
Resistance Army” and then forced to kill their own kinfolk. The U.N.
and many other non-profit organizations have set up camps in Uganda in
hopes of protecting many of the displaced Acholi people. These camps
are overcrowded and have been infiltrated by many diseases such as Typhoid,
Malaria, and now most commonly Cholera. These are only a few of the numerous
challenges that the villages face.
HOW CAN WE HELP?
Tri Beta is planning a campus-wide
Bowl-A-Thon. We are asking each club to form at least one team of
five or six people. Everyone else in your organization is encouraged
to support your team by donating or raising money. Each team will
go head-to-head with the other clubs on campus in a fun evening of bowling
for a good cause. Prizes will be given to the organizations that
raise the most money and bowl the highest score.
Our goal is to raise
$2000 in order to build a house for one of these camps in Uganda.
With your help, this can be done!
