D.A.R.T.’s 17th Annual Radiothon Postponed Due to Community Needs

DART's annual Radiothon was to be held on May 9th, 2019. After the tragic tornado in late April that hit Ruston, a decision was made to postpone the Radiothon until a later date so that D.A.R.T. volunteers and staff could concentrate on helping meet needs in the emergency.

A decision will be made in the summer for a new date of the Radiothon.


Alpha Chi Omega Postpones Annual Walk a Mile in Their Shoes until the fall at La Tech University

For several year in a row, the young women of Alpha Chi Omega Beta Psi at Louisiana Tech host a fun and festive event to raise awareness and funds for D.A.R.T. While this event first challenged men to “walk a mile” in high-heeled shoes or bedazzled flip flops, the sorority later invited women to try the same mile in extra-large men’s shoes. Students, parents, families and now even dogs participate!

Alpha Chi Omega postponed the event due to the tornado that damaged the Tech campus prior to the event.
