UA Fraternity Tau Kappa Epsilon will host the first annual “TKE’s Ride to Remember” Car Show at Reid Park on Sunday, April 26, noon-5 p.m. All proceeds from the show will be donated to Diamond Children’s Medical Center at University Medical Center.

“We believe it’s important for Greek Life from The University of Arizona to not only make a positive impact on people within the campus, but also on the lives of people in the Tucson community who supported our university for many years,” said Nicholas Pigg, TKE fraternity member and car show organizer. “What better way to help than to support the drastically needed children's hospital being built right here in Tucson?”
The University of Arizona, University Physicians Healthcare and University Medical Center work together to care for patients, educate medical students, train resident-physicians and conduct clinical and basic research. The UA Steele Children’s Research Center and UMC are working together to build Diamond Children’s Medical Center (www.diamondchildrens.org), now under construction and scheduled to open in 2010. Diamond Children's will be Arizona’s only pediatric inpatient medical center connected to an academic research facility – the Steele Center (www.steelecenter.arizona.edu).
