Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated is an international service organization that was founded on the campus of Howard University, an HBCU in Washington, D.C. in 1908. It is the oldest Greek-letter organization established by African-American college-educated women. Our international membership has nearly 300,000 distinguished women who boast excellent academic records, proven leadership skills, and are involved in the global community through advocacy and service.

Our goal for the HBCU For Life: Pink Pearls 5K Virtual Run is to raise $20K or more. This will enable us to continue funding, supporting, and serving the Broward County community by providing deserving students the opportunity to become aware of, and/or attend an HBCU. It is our hope that you will support and assist us in achieving our goal.
