Iron Phi was developed to strengthen both Phi Delta Theta and its impact on the fight against Lou Gehrig’s disease. To become an Iron Phi, an individual must raise $1,000 through the Iron Phi fundraising website and achieve an athletic goal of choice. Dollars raised equally benefit The ALS Association for ALS research and the Phi Delta Theta Foundation for educational programming initiatives. Dollars raised by Canadian Phis are applied to the ALS Society of Canada and the Canadian Phi Delta Theta Foundation. More than 2,300 Phis of all ages and athletic abilities have raised $945,000+ by doing everything from running and biking to swimming and walking in their pursuit to become Iron Phis.
