The fraternity brothers are cycling to raise money to help people with disabilities.
“People only know they have a disability if someone tells them that. You’re not born feeling like you have a disability,” said Andre Arman.
The cyclists are members, or alumni, of Pi Kappa Phi. They made their first stop Monday at the Special Populations Center in Cape Coral. There they shared lunch with center clients and even had an impromptu dance.
Different fraternities around the country have come under fire recently for inappropriate behavior. Most recently, members of the Zeta Beta Tau fraternity at the University of Florida were accused of spitting on disabled veterans in North Florida.
“That’s not what we stand for,” said Cody Stoddard. “A lot of the good that fraternities do is overshadowed.”
