By Zach Morgan Mateo Cota was like any other toddler, full of energy, mischief and love. The Cota family of five was active in school and sports yet all that changed in a day. Just before Mateo’s 2nd birthday, he was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.  The treatment process for his disease is about 3.5 years long.  His treatment is to end on December 23rd, 2016.  In 2014 a fundraising campaign began aptly named Team Mateo. Team Mateo’s focus is to provide awareness and support of Mateo Cota’s condition My involvement with Team Mateo comes from my community service work I did serving as the Philanthropy Chair of Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at Cal Poly San Luis Obispo. Mateo’s mother, Erika Cota, worked in the Panhellenic Greek office, and word caught on about Mateo’s condition in the Cal Poly community.  The Philanthropy Chair before me, Tobey Nelson-Gal acted upon this matter and made Team Mateo the primary philanthropy organization for Zeta Beta Tau at Cal Poly. During my term as chair, I managed events that helped fundraise for Mateo’s treatment.  I organized a tropical themed carnival called ZBTahiti that was open to the San Luis Obispo community in which community members paid to play carnival games for their chance to win various prizes.  The second event was called “Get on the Ball.” During this event, my fraternity brothers and I would roll around a 6-foot diameter beach ball around the Cal Poly campus. I went to some local businesses in SLO and asked if they would pledge to donate money per each signature on the ball. Usually, it would be around 1 to 5 cents per name. During my term, my fraternity and I raised about 4,000 dollars to help fundraise Mateo’s treatment. I have gotten close with the Cota family and continued to reach out to them and check on the progress of “The Beast” (aka Mateo).  This past year, even though I graduated from Cal Poly, I continued to help the fraternity in overseeing the events that help fundraise for Mateo’s treatment.  It brings me a lot of joy seeing how much the Cota family appreciates my fraternity for the work we have done to support Team Mateo.  The members of Zeta Beta Tau see Mateo as their “little brother” and strive to support him and his family. To donate to Team Mateo please visit www.youcaring.com/teammateobeast. Any level of help is welcomed, and the Cota family are tremendously grateful.
