Nebraska City’s Alpha Omega Chapter of Beta Sigma Phi organizes and sponsors the AppleJack Fun Run, using it as their main fundraiser for the year.  The sorority gives the money back to Nebraska City; in recent years, they have helped fund the One School, One Book literacy push, purchased a new lighted holiday banner to hang above 4th Corso on the west end of town, and have provided hundreds of dollars in scholarship money to graduating seniors.
