Raising funds for Tripp
Contact: Rene Abadie
HAMMOND– Southeastern Louisiana University student Hunter Robinson rides a stationary bicycle in the university’s Student Union Mall, while Delta Tau Delta fraternity brothers Ben Black, left, and Jeremy Stoufflet look on. Fraternity members took turns riding the bike for three days (Sept. 26-28) in an effort to raise funds for the Tripp Roth family of Ponchatoula. Three-year-old Tripp, the son of Courtney and Randy Roth, a former member of the Southeastern baseball team, suffers from the rare skin disorder Epidermanlysis Bullosa (EB), which results in severe skin blistering and sores. The Epsilon Phi chapter of the fraternity chose the Roth family as the beneficiary of their annual fundraiser, “Delts-Do-1000," and raised more than $1,000.
