Journey of Hope Wheels Into Town


The NSYMCA has been an overnight host to the philanthropic cycling team for the past eight years, providing riders with hot meals, showers and a place to rest until they hit the road the next morning.

Each summer since 1988, three Journey of Hope teams originating in San Francisco, Los Angeles, and Seattle – solely comprised of members of the Pi Kappa Phi national fraternity- ride across 32 different states fundraising and spreading a message of acceptance and understanding for people with disabilities. The team rides an average of 75-90 miles a day, making as many as 65 overnight visits to churches, corporations and community centers along the way until they reach Washington, D.C. on August 11th.
