Omega Pi Omega Gives Back
In 2018, Omega Pi Omega successfully launched its signature fundraiser, the “Annual 5K Run/Walk Health Expo” where participants of all ages and walks of life come together for an eventful day that includes all types of health information. Programs of service are supported by two additional annual fundraisers, the Harlem Renaissance Casino Night and a bowling night. Each year scholarships are awarded to a local high school student who attends an HBCU.
