Brothers of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity are doing more than just cycling. They’re raising both funds and awareness for people with disabilities.
“Just looking at a person as an individual instead of whatever difference they may have and just sort of seeing that being able to interact with them and support them, despite that,” said Evan Camejo, public relations coordinator for the Journey of Hope with the Ability Experience.
It’s part of the fraternity’s nonprofit, The Ability Experience’s Journey of Hope: a ride that takes them from Seattle, Washington, all the way to Washington D.C.
“I think it’s just something that helps you put life in perspective. Like being able to enjoy the simple things and know what truly matters, like being around other people and building those relationships,” Batres said.
