Jump-A-Thon Is On For The Next 24 Hours

You know we all like to jump around sometimes but imagine doing it for 24 hours straight.

That's what the young ladies of Delta Zeta are doing in Greenville. They started their quest Saturday morning at 5AM. They plan to stop jumping at 5AM Sunday morning.

Sorority sister Brittany Owens says, "we get tired but Delta Zeta doesn't rest."

They are participating in the 8Th Annual Jump-A-Thon.

"It's for Gallaudet University," says Sarah Smith who is VP of Programing for Delta Zeta. "It's for the speech impaired so we jump on a trampoline for 24 hours and all the proceeds go to them."

Smith continued, " we do it in three hour shifts and you don't have to jump that long and you probably jump like 15 minutes at a time. So it's not bad it's good exercise."

Smith says the event usually raises over two-thousand dollars.
