Our Iron Phi Story

Iron Phi

Nebraska Alpha - University of Nebraska, Lincoln

Welcome to Nebraska Alpha's Iron Phi team page!

We Phi Delts have a special saying within our organization - "We enjoy life by the help and society of others."  This is, in fact, is our open motto and explains our Chapter's desire to help others through the Iron Phi initiative. 

The mission of Iron Phi is to strengthen the Phi Delta Theta International Fraternity and the impact it has on the fight against Lou Gehrig's disease through the fundraising and athletic efforts of its members.

Those of us listed below have committed to becoming Iron Phis.  We have selected an athletic endeavor that we'd like to accomplish, will be fundraising for The ALS Association and the Phi Delta Theta Foundation during our training, and look forward to completing the athletic events that we have chosen. It won't be easy, but we know the experience will last a lifetime.

Each year Phi Delta Theta has two Iron Phi events. The first is the Phi K, a 5K run for all members wishing to become Iron Phis. The second, is our infamous Iron Phi Bike Ride. Each year, Phi's gather at TD Ameritrade Park in Omaha, and bike over 60 miles all the way back to the Phi Delta Theta house in Lincoln.

We would encourage you to do one of two things on this page: 1) Help an individual member of our chapter reach the $1,000 fundraising level by making a donation on their individual page, or 2) Make a general donation to to the Nebraska Alpha Chapter page.

You can track our progress by revisiting this page or frequenting the Iron Phi homepage for an up-to-date look at where we stand in comparison to everyone else.

We thank you for your support, and we appreciate your generosity in helping us achieve our goals.

How Does My Donation Make a Difference?

Your donation towards an Iron Phi athlete equally supports two very important things: Supporting ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) through research and support of ALS families and leadership development for undergraduate members of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity.

At the end of each year calendar year, the LiveLikeLou Foundation grants dollars raised through Iron Phi to fund its initiatives that support ALS research, scholarships to support the higher education goals of ALS dependents, and summer camp experiences for children who have a parent or grandparent with ALS.

Dollars used for undergraduate leadership development have and continue to help Phi Delta Theta educate more of its undergraduate members as they work to “Become the Greatest Version of Themselves.”
