The Alpha Phi Omega service fraternity hosted its annual Nate’s Run For Smiles 5K run charity event in honor of Nathaniel Rand ’12 at the Cornell Plantations Sunday morning. Rand, a brother of the fraternity, died in a swimming accident in a gorge in July 2011.
According to Bridgette Aumand ’15, president of Alpha Phi Omega, the fraternity was able to register approximately 85 people for the event and was able to raise nearly $2,000 to donate to the Nathaniel Rand Fund at Children’s Hospital at Montefiore, where Rand volunteered before his death.
