American Cancer Society and Sigma Together Waging War Against Cancer
Through this partnership, the two organizations wage war against cancer through ACSlegislative campaigns aimed at promoting legislation that combats cancer, encourages education and awareness, and seeks to level the ills of disparity between those who can afford treatments and services and those who cannot.

Our partnership with the American Cancer Society marks a new advocacy outreach strategy that will effectively engage Phi Beta Sigma members to take action in legislative campaigns.

ACS Code BluAmerican Cancer Society has developed a high tech web site that allow members of Sigma, Zeta, family and community to write letters to congressional leaders requesting action on particular legislative issues.

Brothers will receive the Code Blue Message via email. Code Blue Alerts take two minutes of easy action that helps increase funding for prevention of health disparities and other Health issues.

Sigmas will participate in Relay For Life and other fund raising for the American Cancer Society.  Our goal for the Region is to raise $20,000 over the next two years through Relay For Life and other fundraisers.  Each chapter is expected to raise and contribute a minimum of $300 to the American Cancer Society.
