Derby Days is Sigma Chi's national philanthropy benefiting the Huntsman Cancer Institute in Salt Lake City, Utah. HCI was started by Sigma Chi and four-time cancer survivor, Jon M. Huntsman. In 1995, inspired by the support from many family and friends, the Huntsman family pledged 100 million dollars for a state of the art cancer research facility. Over a decade later, Huntsman Cancer Institute is the leading cancer research facility in the world. Sigma Chi International Fraternity and Huntsman Cancer Institute made a 10 million dollar pledge over seven years, this past Summer.
This year we have had a few generous company sponsors and want to give a huge shout-out to them for supporting this great cause!
