WABI previews fraternity’s ‘Humvee Push’ to raise money for troops

WABI (Channel 5) reported the University of Maine Phi Gamma Delta (FIJI) Omega Mu chapter will host its second annual “Humvee Push” from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 23. Teams are invited to push a Down East Emergency Medical Institute (DEEMI) Humvee 20 yards in the tennis court parking lot near the New Balance Student Recreation Center. The team with the fastest time will win. The event is held to raise money for the United Service Organizations (USO) to support U.S. troops. “We’ve had brothers in the past in our fraternity that have served and done their part for our country so giving back to the troops, it means a lot to us,” said UMaine student Jeremy Binding.
