He has 15 years of multi-sport experience, including 12 marathons and three iron distance triathlons. With the support of his wife and two daughters, ’84 Cabrini alum Steve Brown will be competing in Iron Man USA to raise funds for the Philadelphia affiliate of The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.

Brown was a business administration major at Cabrini, where he played soccer. He played during John Dzik’s first years as the athletic director. He calls playing a “growing experience,” because they played a harder schedule to progress the reputation of the team.

On July 27, Iron Man USA will be held in Lake Placid, N.Y., Brown will be sponsored by Cycles BiKyle, in Bryn Mawr Pa. The Iron Man USA is a triathlon that consists of a 2.4-mile swim, a 112-mile bike race and a 26.2-mile run.

The 42 year old Upper Darby resident is the father of two daughters ages 13, and 14. Although they are involved in their own athletics, he calls them, “my number one support crew and cheering section.”

Brown works as an officer and section manager for PFPC, which handles PNC Bank mutual funds in King of Prussia and Wilmington, Del. In his spare time, he trains for Iron Man triathlons, which he began competing in 15 years ago. He thought that it was something that he had to get out of his system so he entered the Great Floridian Triathlon. “My daughter placed my medal around my neck. I found my wife and friends and we all shared in the victory. I thought that this was something that I needed to do once and get out of my system…I was wrong.”
