On July 26, 2008, Beta Omicron Chapter members Adam Upshaw and Collin McKnight, along with 23 other Pi Kappa Phis rode through northeast Louisiana as part of the Journey of Hope. The cross-country bicycle ride, sponsored by Push America, raises money and awareness for people with disabilities.
Fellow Pi Kapps Cameron Moises, Cody Bourque, Lane Luckie, Wil Adams, Kyle Duhon, Shayne Creppel, and Brandon King traveled to Monroe, Louisiana to welcome Beta Omicron brothers and other Pi Kapps who were participating in the Journey of Hope. After visiting with the cyclists, they spent time with friends from ARCO, a local organization that empowers people with disabilities.
The cyclists have been riding now for almost 2 months and will arrive in Washington, DC in late August.
