About This Activity

Phi Sigma Pi welcomes the Virginia Tech and Blacksburg community in remembering the life of Michael Benjamin Perry, a Blacksburg Native and fellow Hokie who was taken from us during the Summer of 1997. The 20th Annual Michael B. Perry 5K MADD Dash is held in honor of our fallen Brother who was victim to a drunk driving accident. All proceeds from this year’s race will benefit Mothers Against Drunk Driving.
