Fraternity Rides for People with Disabilities


Cheyenne, WY (KGWN) - Fraternity brothers of Pi Kappa Phi are biking across the country to help those with disabilities on their “Journey of Hope”.
They made a stop in Cheyenne Saturday on their 4,300 mile journey from Seattle to Washington D.C.
Those with disabilities in Cheyenne got to spend some time with the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi during a cookout at Lions Park.
They plan to raise $650,000 for those with disabilities this year.
In addition to raising money, they are also raising empathy and awareness for the disabled.
"At the end of one of the friendship visits I had a guy come up and hug me, said 'Thank you for everything you guys are doing, we really appreciate it' and he just didn't want us to leave. He hugged me and didn't want to let go and it was the greatest experience I've had so far on this trip," said Joe Shane, Journey of Hope rider.
If you'd like to contribute to help people with disabilities you can go to PushAmerica.org.
