Phi Delta Participated in the Iron Horse Challenge for ALS

On April 14, 2013, 15 members of the Pennsylvania Lambda Chapter of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity participated in the Iron Horse Challenge, a 26-mile team marathon, held in Pittsburgh. The race involved eight chapters.

Phi Delta Theta held this event to fundraise for ALS research and the ALS Association. ALS, better known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, is a fatal disease involving the central nervous system. Lou Gehrig was a proud member of the Phi Delta Theta fraternity and, in honor of his battle with this disease, the fraternity raises money for research to find a cure.

The PA Lambda Chapter members who participated in the Iron Horse Challenge were Patrick Carrington, Aaron Douthit, Ryan Egan, Mark Pleiss, Zach Hilliard, Taylor Hall, James Rosencrans, Chris Wilson, Brandon Roberts, Max Jergel, Zachary Russell, Brad Swartzlander, Anthony Almes, Sam Sullivan, and Jason Eckle.
