Pi Kappa Phi Spends Summer Benefiting People With Disabilities
August 19, 2019
Ramiro Vargas, a senior film and television studies student, and several of his fraternity brothers were among hundreds of bicyclists to raise funds and awareness for people with disabilities this summer. Through The Ability Experience, the philanthropic initiative of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity, hundreds of bicyclists nationwide rode 12,700 miles in 33 states to contribute to the effort. Vargas and several of his fraternity brothers met with local community sponsors for “Friendship Visits.” The visits provided the cyclists a break to connect with the people they are riding to support and included activities like dance-offs, games and sports.
