What is Journey of Hope?

Journey of Hope is a philanthropic cross-country cycling event. Since 1988, Pi Kappa Phi brothers have been riding across the United States to benefit people with disabilities. Cycling has been the best communication vehicle for the Push America, our national philanthropy.

Our brothers take to the roads of America, spreading a message of acceptance and understanding for people with disabilities to millions of people through special events and media coverage. Our cycling events raise over $500,000 every summer to build hope for the future of people with disabilities while developing tomorrow’s leaders.
