It was created to promote self-care through physical wellness, emotional wellness, and awareness/advocacy. Specifically, the Red S.H.O.E. challenge is the physical health component of DeltaCare that encourages members to engage in healthy behaviors. S.H.O.E. is an acronym for Self-care, Healthy Options, and Exercise.

In The Beginning

The Akron-Canton Alumnae Chapter blossomed from the idea of Agnes R. Finley, whose daughters – Frances K. Welch and C. Joyce Finley-Jackson –were contemplating joining the Cleveland Chapter. After consulting with a childhood friend, Benette McClellan who was a Delta, Finley suggested that her daughters get in touch with Benette and start a chapter of their own in the city of Akron. Another Cleveland Chapter Soror, Guernia Morgan, was contacted and the group began the search for other interested Deltas.
