The Tau Kappa Epsilon fraternity from Northern Michigan University held a unique Teeter-Totter Marathon fundraiser. For three days, members of the fraternity were on the teeter totter inside the Westwood Mall in Marquette. They did it to raise money for St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. Members of the group say charity is one of the core values. “We all joined this organization because we believe in what we’re trying to do and because we all believe in the charity factor of it as well as it is a good way for all of us to get together and bond as brothers,” said Ethan Reader of TKE.
