Cyclists ride for disabled


Hopping on a bicycle and traveling 4,370 miles in the summer may not seem like an ideal way to spend a vacation but that’s exactly what 88 bicyclists from Pi Kappa Phi Fraternities across America are doing this year to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities in their cross country “Journey of Hope.”

One of three groups of Journey of Hope riders was in Pratt on July 12 and paid a friendship visit to the clients and staff at Arrowhead West. The group enjoyed a noon meal with clients and staff then got to cool off with a water balloon fight, dunk tank and water slide as well as some snow cones.
