Welcome to Sean “Kelevra” Dreznin’s Iron Phi page!
In 2010, I became IronPhi #23, a proud honor for me as I balanced work, training for my first ever Half Ironman & fund raising and achieved all my goals, which is pretty cool! –
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. Lou Gehrig was a member of Phi Delta Theta, and our organization has taken an active role in finding a cure.
The net proceeds will support ALS (Lou Gehrig’s disease) research, education, screening and treatment. It will also help strengthen an organization (Phi Delta Theta) that has had a lasting impact on my life.
In 2011, I will be competing in my 2nd Half Ironman in Augusta, GA in September and my First Full Ironman in Florida in November (140.6 miles!)
According to The ALS Association’s web site, approximately 5,600 people in the U.S. are diagnosed with ALS each year. It is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that affects nerve cells in the brain and the spinal cord. Motor neurons reach from the brain to the spinal cord and from the spinal cord to the muscles throughout the body. The progressive degeneration of the motor neurons in ALS eventually leads to their death. That’s why I’m becoming an Iron Phi. To do something bold about Lou Gehrig’s disease.
I’ve set my personal goal at $2,500.00, as last year I raised $1,081 so this year I only need to raise $1,419. So I am asking for your support. Would you please consider making a donation of $50.00 or larger? You can make a donation by visiting, http://www.tinyurl.com/3mu7ues . You can also send a check to Iron Phi to me at (850 South Tamiami Trail, #325, Sarasota, FL 34236) if you’d rather donate that way.
I hope that you’ll share this incredible adventure with me – by supporting me in my fundraising efforts. <—- (Click here for website)
I felt honored and humbled in so many ways by the amount of support I received in my fund raising efforts and motivating comments from friends, family and supporters. I will need to hear those kind words again as this year’s goals are stout!
I will also be raising funds this year to honor 2 fallen Phi’s. Both of which played a part in who I am today and not only were my friends, but sons and fathers and brothers to many.
