Florida Gamma (FSU) Raises $17,000 At 5K To Honor Brother Who Passed From Brain Injury



On April 12, the Florida Gamma Chapter at Florida State University hosted the Trent Taylor 5k, their annual spring philanthropy. This year marked the third year hosting the 5k in honor of their fallen brother, Trent Taylor. Trent passed away three years ago from a brain injury, and because of this, all proceeds from the event benefitted the Brain Injury Association of Florida.

The chapter raised $17,000 this year, the most they’ve ever raised, and more than 400 people registered for the race. Furthermore, the chapter partnered with Zeta Tau Alpha sorority to host a barbecue in conjunction with the race. The free barbecue was open to the community and promoted organ donor registration. The addition to this year’s event allowed the chapter to raise awareness for both brain injury and organ donation.
