Delta Sigma Theta Sorority Charlotte Alumnae Chapter will host its first Sorority Greek Health Olympics March 17.

The competition starts at 10 a.m. at Johnson C. Smith University’s Erwin Belk Complex as part of the sorority’s annual Sisterhood Month activities.

“This event is a great opportunity for Delta members and other Greek sorority members to exercise in a competitive, yet fun environment,” said Melody Harris, second vice president of the Charlotte Chapter and co-chair of Membership Services.

Members of Alpha Kappa Alpha, Sigma Gamma Rho and Zeta Phi Beta will compete in several events. Some, like sprints and power walking, are Olympic-themed; others, like beanbag toss, tug-of-war, obstacle course, and four legged race are for fun. The sororities will compete for gold, silver and bronze medals in addition to bragging rights. 

Harris said the idea of a Sorority Olympics was borrowed from another Delta chapter who successfully held such an event, and “to promote healthy living and to bond with our Greek sisters. “What better time to do so than Sisterhood Month?”

Sisterhood Month activities conclude with the annual Sisters on the Square event to promote sisterhood and solidarity. During this hour-long event, all four sororities will collect donations to benefit women in the community.
