I just wanted to make a quick announcement about a Philanthropy event my fraternity is putting on for ALS (Lou Gehrig's disease) in the heartland. There are many people who still suffer from the affects of this disease. Recently, many of us were only just made aware of Orlando Thomas (our favorite hard-hitting safety during the exciting 1998 season) and his current experience with ALS. If you're interested in learning more about the disease, here is the wikipedia link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amyotrophic_lateral_sclerosis
I don't know about you, but his sufferings have sure helped further open my eyes to the seriousness of this terrible condition.
Phi Delta Theta at Creighton University in Omaha, Nebraska will be putting on a concert tomorrow night featuring the band Heyday and all proceeds are given to ALS in the Heartland. If you are able, we would sure appreciate any donations for the cause and you can be assured they will go to the right place.
If you would like to donate, you can make checks payable to Phi Delta Theta and send them to this address:
Phi Delta Theta
2500 California Street
Omaha, NE 68178
Thank you! GO VIKES!
