One Fraternity Cycling Across the State for A Cause
One fraternity, different chapters, cycling for one cause. Pi Kappa Phi's philanthropy has geared up and taken on an adventure of their lives. One that challenges men from all over the country to push themselves to help others.
The organization, Push America, was founded in 1977, and since Pi Kappa Phi has raised over 15 million dollars for people with disabilities. This summer, 28 cyclists and 8 crew members have taken the streets of Florida, despite the blazing heat. Today, they stopped in Ocala, and tomorrow they will take a break in Gainesville.
The men started in Miami and will go bike to Tallahassee, an 800-mile cycle across Florida. It's 75 miles per day, and 2,500 dollars raised per person. A physical and mental challenge that these men say is nothing compared to what people with disabilities have to face every day.
