Category: Gear Up Florida
Last week, about 40 fraternity brothers stopped in Gainesville to take a break from an 850-mile bicycle ride through Florida.
On Sunday, May 14, a group of fraternity men consisting of 29 cyclists and nine crew members will depart Miami to begin Gear Up Florida, the 850-mile annual ride across Florida to support people with disabilities.
Since 1997 many Pi Kappa Phi members have accepted the Gear Up Florida challenge to bike hundreds of miles throughout the Sunshine State to raise money for people with disabilities.
Almost 100 members of Special Populations, cheering and holding handmade signs, welcomed 21 bicyclists Monday afternoon at the Sun Splash Family Waterpark pavilion.
