Friendship Visit 2016

Wednesday, May 14th, we hosted a Friendship Visit for Gear Up Florida! Thirty-three members of Pi Kappa Phi participated in this annual event with Push America. They cycled over 800 miles from Miami to Tallahassee with one mission in mind: To reach out to as many people as possible across the State of Florida, spreading a message of acceptance and understanding on behalf of people with disabilities. It is a great event for a great cause! Thanks Push America for making us a destination for the Friendship Visit!
