The Missouri Lambda chapter of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity at Northwest Missouri State University is back on its teeter-totter this week raising money for Down syndrome research.

The annual fundraiser is taking place, for the most part, in front of the SPE fraternity house on West Ninth Street and will continue through the end of Saturday's Homecoming parade.

That’s 105 straight hours of college students riding a teeter-totter and flagging down passers-by willing to pay a dollar to throw a pie in the face of a frat brother.

All chapter members participate, and chapter President Zach Corbett said the guys are taking turns working three- and four-hour shifts.

Proceeds go to the Down Syndrome Guild of Greater Kansas City, which funds research into the genetic condition that causes various physical and mental debilities.
SPE has helped support the guild for the past 17 years.

In a bid to attract more donors, the teeter-totter will move to the front lawn of the J.W. Jones Student Union on campus from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Friday before being loaded onto a float for Saturday's parade.

Corbett said he and his fraternity brothers take the effort to heart.

"That's what we’re here for," he said. "Our motto is 'work hard, play hard.' We work to give back to the community and other communities in the area.

"Corbett said the event usually raises about $1,000, but that the fraternity hopes to break that mark this year.

Bonjour Syannia,Mlintenavt que les bleus savent qu’ils ont de réelles chances en coupe du monde c’est motivant pour les suivantes. Mais sans rentrer dans la polémique comment la FFR, les médias, le ministère des sports peuvent agir pour préparer le terrain. Car on l’a vu un titre se gagne sur et en dehors du terrain. Est-ce que la France a assez de moyens de pression dans le monde du rugby et est-ce que cette finale brillamment disputée lui a apporté suffisamment de crédibilité ?@ +Laurent
