Journey of Hope, a trans-American cycling event founded by Pi Kappa Phi which raises awareness for people with disabilities, made its stop Thursday afternoon in Portales.
Andrew Coet, 20, from Largo, Florida, began his training for Journey of Hope in December two years ago. He applied in the spring of 2013 and was the first person to apply and be accepted.
“My mom bought me the bike I needed to do the trip so I applied as soon as applications went up,” said Coet.
