Lou's Olympic Challenge - FINAL STANDINGS

An Iron Phi Competition from February 4 – April 30

This February, the world will tune in to the XXIV Olympic Winter Games in Beijing and watch many of the world’s greatest athletics strive for greatness. At the same time, Phi Delta Theta and the LiveLikeLou Foundation will host Lou’s Olympics through the Iron Phi program, giving members of Phi Delta Theta their own opportunity to go for the gold as they raise funds for a valuable cause.

Lou’s Olympics is a challenge for both undergraduate and alumni Phi Delts, current and aspiring Iron Phis, and is setup to reward individuals, chapters, and Phi Delt province winners.

The winning chapter within each province will be the chapter that has the highest value for dollars raised per undergraduate chapter member. For example, a 75-man chapter that raises $10,000 would have a value of $133.33. Iron Phi fundraising by undergraduates (including Phikeias) and alumni is all included in the chapter’s results. To win the province qualifier and advance to the next round, a chapter’s participants must raise at least $4,444 during this timeframe.

Wild Cards - If a chapter does not win its province qualifer but raises $4,444+, they will also advance to the second round and receive the bat head trophy.
