Push America Cyclists to Visit Some Lubbock Disabled
A group of cyclists will roll into the Hub City this weekend for charity.
Push America’s Journey of Hope consists of three teams, leaving from San Francisco, Seattle, and Long Beach, and will cycle a combined 12,000 miles this summer.
The group will have dinner and a friendship visit at the Lubbock State Supported Living Center, which serves as home to nearly 300 people with disabilities.
Three Texas natives and TCU students are participating in the Journey of Hope as members of the South team.
The cycling trek raises funds and awareness for people with disabilities, in hopes to enhance the quality of their lives, according to a press release.
Push America is the national philanthropy of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity, and each cyclist commits to raising at least $5,000 for people with disabilities. Combined with corporate sponsorships, the Journey of Hope team will raise more than $550,000 for people with disabilities.
The team will visit the Lubbock State Supported Living Center on Sunday, July 1st at 5 p.m. This is the second year in a row that the group has stopped into that particular facility.
