Troy University’s chapter of Alpha Tau Omega will be featured in a segment of the Travel Channel’s documentary “Spring Break 24/7.”
The program highlights the spring break travels of college students, who video document their break preparations and exploits. For more than a dozen brothers of ATO, this year’s break will be about raising funds for Special Olympics in Alabama and Florida, in addition to the original charity.
Walk Hard 2013 will begin on the Quad on March 8, and finish six days later and 140 miles to the south at Panama City Beach’s Pier Park. The fraternity is soliciting corporate and individual donors for the philanthropy. The effort began in 2010 when students Kyle Crabtree and Austin Bivins saw a man dressed as Superman walking down U.S. Highway 231 carrying an American flag. Curiosity sparked, they set out to organize a hike from Troy to the beach and began recruiting more participants.
