Upper Peninsula Fraternities Rolling Tubs For Charities

MARQUETTE, Mich. (AP) — Members of college fraternities are on a roll — for good causes — between cities of the Upper Peninsula.

Tau Kappa Epsilon at Lake Superior State University is pushing a tub on wheels from Marquette’s Northern Michigan University to Sault Ste. Marie. Fraternity members plan to leave Saturday and hope to reach their campus by Sunday afternoon.

Meanwhile, members of the TKE chapter at Michigan Technological University will be racing their own tub on the same day from Marquette to their home in Houghton.

Lake Superior State’s chapter is raising money for St. Jude Children’s Hospital. Michigan Tech’s TKE house is fundraising for the Copper Country Humane Society.
