Reagan Run

The Ronald Reagan Run is an annual philanthropy event which benefits the Alzheimer's association. It was first started by the Beta Mu chapter of Tau Kappa Epsilon, and returned to tradition in 2004. The Reagan Run is a team relay from Lewisburg, PA to the White House in Washington, D.C., spanning over 180 miles, with each brother taking on a leg of the run. Through many months of planning and fund raising, the Beta Mu chapter completes this annual event over the course of Bucknell University's fall break. The Reagan Run is our chapter's most prominent philanthropy event, raising tens of thousands of dollars every year.
