Virtual Experience

While we may be apart and unable to hold in-person events, our drive to provide meaningful shared experiences is unwavering. We have shifted some events to virtual platforms and have created new opportunities to meet folks where they are during this time.

COVID-19 Updates

The Ability Experience is committed to supporting our members, chapters, volunteers, and partner organizations during the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). At this time, our staff is focused on incorporating safe and healthy practices to ensure the long-term success of our fraternity and those we serve. As this situation is fast-moving and constantly evolving, we will continue to provide updates and recommendations through this page.

Change your mindset. Change the world.

The Ability Experience creates experiences that promote the abilities of all people and works to eliminate the labels that unfairly define us, especially for those living with disabilities. Because disability doesn’t mean ‘inability.’ And through millions in donations and millions of Pi Kappa Phi member man-hours, we’re working to change the dialogue around disabilities and champion the abilities of all.


Pi Alphas Return to DC for Memorial Ride

The Capitol Lawn received its annual visit from The Ability Experience last week as a group of Pi Alphas, including Ability Experience staff members and long-time volunteers, rode from Charlotte, NC to Washington D.C. in memory of Todd Porterfield and Jason Tirado. The group arrived at the Capitol on August 9th, the same day the Journey of Hope had planned to arrive this year prior to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Pi Alphas traveled the last 565 miles of the Journey of Hope South Route from August 3rd to August 9th, raising over $20,000 for people with disabilities and honoring Porterfield and Tirado, two men who passed away in 2000 while serving The Ability Experience.
