Deltas and women everywhere are encouraged to adopt the Red S.H.O.E. habits:
Black women disproportionately suffer from some of the most deadly health epidemics because we focus much of our resources on taking care of everyone and everything around us. Tempe Alumnae implements several internal activities to promote healthy lifestyle choices and physical activity among our chapter members.
Because mental health diagnosis and treatment is often stigmatized, Delta Sigma Theta is starting the conversation with women of all ages. The sorority is exploring mechanisms to push past the "shame and stigma" to start meaningful dialogues about emotional wellness during every stage of life. Be sure to check our calendar often for information on the projects our chapter implements to support mental health around the Valley.
September 26, 2018, National Women’s Health and Fitness Day, focused attention on the importance of regular physical activity and health awareness for women. The goal was to encourage women to take control of their health, learn the facts they need to make smart health choices, and make time for regular physical activity. The Tempe Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. participated as we are striving to be #fittoserve.
Imagine a day of caring for your health needs, getting a robust workout, and having fun with your entire family. Soul Stroll for Healthy Living is an annual event focused on adopting a healthy lifestyle and understanding complete care - mind, body and soul. The event includes a 1K/5K walk, health screenings, therapeutic massages, a mobile farmers market, and many fun-filled family fun activities, such as Zumba, line dancing, hula hooping, face painting, music, and much more.
Participation in the event includes a pledge for the 1K/5K walk that benefits our youth programs for middle and high school girls, educational scholarships, international projects, and other worthy programs. Thanks to the support of our pledgees and sponsors, over the past 5 years Soul Stroll has raised more than $50,000 that has been used to sponsor STEM field trips and purchase educational materials for our Delta Academy and Delta GEMS, as well as provide educational scholarships to 15 local students.
Check our site in the fall for information on how to sponsor our 2019 event. We hope to see you there on April 20, 2019!
