Fraternity Cycling 3,900 Miles To Help People With Disabilities Stop in Danville
Danville, VA-- Almost 4,000 miles! That's how far a group of 36 college students from all over the nation are cycling to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities.
They're called the Journey of Hope team, made up of men from the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity. They left Long Beach, California on June 6 and their destination is Washington DC.
They stopped by Danville on Monday and visited those at the Stonewall Therapeutic Recreation Center. They said the challenge is tough, but it's well worth it.
"We just get to meet these people and see all the challenges that they're faced with each and every day. Just to know that they meet and overcome those challenges every day with a smile on their face, it really puts a lot in perspective. It's just a top notch feeling," said Trey Bright, Journey of Hope Team Member,
So far the team has raised almost $500,000.
