Meet Matt, Abby, Nick, and Riley. These four brothers are the brains behind making PBL as involved in THON as they can. They work year long setting up fundraisers, visits with our two families, and keeping the brotherhood informed on important THON information. We are thankful and amazed by their hard work and can't wait to see where their future takes them!
Since 2008, Phi Beta Lambda has raised over $320,000.00 for Four Diamonds at Penn State Hershey Medical Center. That money has helped countless children and their families through cancer diagnoses without ever seeing a bill. Phi Beta Lambda was represented on the floor this year for THON weekend by Laney, Brennan, Delaney, and CJ, who stood for an incredible 46 hours straight in the Bryce Jordan Center. Our entire brotherhood is involved in our THON efforts through fundraising, support from the stands, and events with our THON family throughout the year.
The Parham Family
The Parham Family has been paired with PBL since January 2015. Over these past two years, we have gotten to know Omar, Holly, and their wonderful children, Shae, Sylive, and Asher, very well. Unfortunately their son, Rees, passed away in March 2014 from diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG), an inoperable brain tumor. Each year PBL raises money and awareness so that one day, when a child is diagnosed with DIPG, there will be a treatment plan available to fight it.
