It’s that time of year again. Gamma Xi is thrilled to present Anchor Splash! We are so excited to invite you to make a team, follow the journey on our social media, and give if you feel inclined to do so. Delta Gamma chapters from all across the country host Anchor Splash each year to engage their communities, educate others on vision loss, and raise money for Delta Gamma’s philanthropy, Service for Sight. Anchor Splash is a team competition that incorporates dance/swim routines, swimming relay races, and external activities to build team points.
