Last week, the Phi’s took to the Centennial Student Mall with a junked car for students and faculty to smash with a sledgehammer in an effort to raise money for the ALS Association who funds research for a cure to ALS.
ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, is short for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and it is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord causing the inability to use every day motor skills making basic muscle movements like walking and eating very difficult. Phi Delta Theta supports the ALS Association because our fellow Phi Delt and Brother in the Bond, Lou Gehrig, who was a Hall of Fame Baseball Player for the New York Yankees was one of the first people to be diagnosed with the disease. You can find out more about Lou Gehrig and ALS by checking out these links: Information About ALS or Phi Delta Theta & ALS.
The brothers did this same fundraiser last spring during finals week and raised about $110.00. Two days of rain deterred many people from stepping to the plate and taking a few swings. We set a goal to try to double our amount raised and set the bar high at $200. Due to the generosity of other Maverick Greeks, students, and faculty, we surpassed our goal and raked in $240.00! We’d like to thank everyone who participated and donated. We hope it was as much fun for you as it was for us! We will be doing the Car Smash again during Finals Week of Spring Semester! We are also in the works of planning some more on campus fundraisers as well so stay tuned to our social media and blog for more details!
