butions, members have invested in non-profits that provide sustainable solutions for people who lack access to basic necessities like health care, quality shelter, education and job training.

A Princeton High School grad is helping to fan the flame of freedom through a fundraising walk to benefit the Freedom Center. Alex Tyree, who graduated in 2007, is a senior at Miami University. He and other members of Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity will participate in a 40-mile walk Friday, Oct. 15, and Saturday, Oct. 16, that will trace the path of the Underground Railroad. “One hundred percent of the funds donated to the Kappa Alpha Psi Freedom Walk will be used to further the Freedom Center’s education programs,” said Kim Robinson, director of development and education at the Freedom Center. “These programs are designed to educate and

inspire people of all ages to work alongside the Freedom Center to help end the ‘unfreedoms’ of racism, illiteracy, genocide, hunger, tyranny and slavery that still exists in the world today,” he said. “I am really impressed with all of these young men,” Robinson said of Tyree and his fraternity brothers. The event was prompted by a desire to show Miami University in a positive light after a recent incident in which sorority members of Alpha Xi Delta and their dates allegedly defaced and tried to steal items during a visit to the museum. “We feel that within any negative is an opportunity to make a positive,” Tyree said. “This is an opportunity to bring light to a center that pledges to educate people about the struggle for freedom across the world, and about the historical prominence of the Underground Railroad. “We hope this brings more awareness to the Underground Railroad and the Freedom Center,” Tyree said. “And we hope it brings awareness to genocide, hunger, slavery and racism across the country and the world.” The fraternity is asking for a $1 donation for each of the 40 miles that make up the route. Those who want to contribute can find more information at www.freedomcenter.org. “I feel like it’s the closest thing I can get to a time machine and generate feelings that our heroes of the Underground Railroad actually encountered,” Tyree said. Of Tyree and his fraternity brothers, Robinson said: “In my mind, the heroes in all of this are them. “We will benefit and the public will benefit,” Robinson said. “It’s a win-win, but the heroes are these eight undergrads. “They are fanning the flame for freedom today.”
