Sorority sisters tackle cancer in memory of friend

FPS staff report

Rosie BowlThe Zeta Tau Alpha Sorority (ZTA) sisters of Delta Theta held the 1st Annual Rosie Bowl Nov. 11 at Ohio Northern University’s (ONU) Tundra.

The Alumnae vs. Actives Powder Puff Football Tournament was held in honor and memory of Roselyn Derby, a beloved ZTA sister.  Derby was a 2009 graduate of Ohio Northern University with a degree in Nursing.

Derby lost her battle with Adrenal Cortical Carcinoma Oct. 12, 2010.  Proceeds will go to the Carrollton Relay For Life team “Run for Rosie” in Derby’s memory. 

According to family, the ZTA sisters still remain very much a part of Rosie’s family, taking time each year to attend Relay for Life and the annual Run for Rosie 5K Walk/Run.  The ZTA sisters hosted a brunch at the newly re-furnished Zeta House for all participants and guests, including members of Derby’s family who traveled to ONU for the event.

The event, organized by Courtney and Bryan Mulvaney and Jackie and Jack Rosso, raised $450.

Shown above are ZTA sisters who participated in the Powder Puff Football Tournament.
