The Delta Chi Fraternity has joined in the fight against cancer and dedicated itself to The V Foundation for Cancer Research. Jimmy Valvano's hard-fought dream of a better tomorrow embodies the spirt of Delta Chi. His famous words of strength, "Don't Give Up...Don't Ever Give Up!" resonate with every brother.

Each year, our chapter raises thousands of dollars for international cancer research through our unique philanthropy event, Hot and Bothered. In the month leading up to the event, we collect donations that are placed "on" a brother. The brothers with the most donations placed towards them are subject to eating the Trinidad Moruga Scorpion Pepper, the second hottest pepper in the world. For each $1,000 we raise, a brother eats the pepper.

In our sixth year last year, Delta Chi raised $10,215 for The V Foundation, resulting in 10 brothers eating the pepper!


Join us at the Delta Chi House on April 8th for our 7th Annual Hot and Bothered. Help us reach our goal of $10,000 and watch 10 brothers eat one of the hottest peppers in the world. Donate in the name of the brother you're betting on here.
