Our Chapter On September 29, 2012 the brothers of MO EP walked alongside the ALS Association in memory of Brother Lou Gehrig and all those affected by amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. The annual walk is an effort to raise awareness of ALS and funds for research, cures, and assistance to those already affected by this tragic disease.

This year the brothers had a goal of raising $2,500, however, they went above and beyond, exceeding that goal and raising a total of $2,860! A big thanks is extended to the family of Brother Jordan Tierney, as they generously donated $1,000. Collectively, the chapter held their annual soccer tournament with the ladies of Sigma Kappa, which was the major fundraiser for the team. Moreover, the chapter showed impressive support by having 58 members register online, 48 of those members place donations, 6 clean-up volunteers, and 40 walkers.

This year’s Keith Worthington chapter of ALS had a fundraising goal of $90,000, although with the support of chapters like Missouri Epsilon (who was the 8th highest contributing team) they set a new donation record, exceeding $120,000. Moreover, the Springfield ALS Association instituted a new Greek challenge to the chapters of Missouri State University. Needless to say Phi Delts once again took home the first annual Springfield area ALS Association trophy as they beat out Pi Kappa Alpha. The chapter will be recognized at an awards banquet in November.

The Brothers hard work really paid off as they contributed 58 hours of community service, but more importantly, helped out a great cause that is near and dear to every Phi.
