The Backyard Run for Cystic Fibrosis

October 7, 2010

This event was brought to our attention earlier this year and we felt it was a cause worth passing on.  For the past three years the Brothers of Phi Delta Theta Iota Chapter of the University of Pittsburgh have taken part in an event that has become known as the Backyard Run.  The run takes place a week before the Backyard Brawl and consists of Brothers from Phi Delta Theta running a football the complete 79 miles between Morgantown, WV and Pittsburgh, PA.  Why would anyone do this you ask?  Well, the event was created to help raise funds for the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation. You can check out this press release on last year’s run.
