Get ready, it’s HazingPrevention.Org’s National Hazing Prevention Week (NHPW)! Each year The Max Gruver Foundation (MGF) is proud to partner with Alpha Delta Pi and Sigma Chi for the annual Stop the Hazing Campaign. During this week, ADPi and Sigma Chi chapters nationwide will help virtually share Max’s story and spread awareness about the dangers of hazing. The Max Gruver Foundation will also be seen with Anti-Hazing Coalition partners as we present a powerful message from parents who have lost their sons to hazing. Below is a list of events and ways that you can participate in NHPW!

Anti-Hazing Coalition presents Love, Mom & Dad - Turning tragedy into progress
“As many campuses have moved away from in-person experiences this fall, the AHC wants to ensure students receive hazing prevention education. The AHC parents will present a program streamed live on social media to share their sons’ stories and educate current students about hazing prevention. The program will include Q&A with the parents moderated by Hailey Mangrum of Phired Up and member of Delta Sigma Theta.”
