So it has been 2-3 years since we have been using the website. I have been working on the website for some time, and there is still a bunch of information that needs to be updated. In the coming weeks we will have a full recruitment schedule running, a calendar full of all our events for the upcoming semester and much more! Check back for regularly updates!

Brother Derrick Bessaoud Bikes Across the Country

Pi Kappa Phi Brother Derrick Bessaoud.One of our more recent alumni and brother, Derrick Bessaoud, just arrived in Seattle, WA to begin the Journey of Hope, Push America’s cross-country bicycle ride. Derrick is one of a growing list of UMass PiKapps to participate Push America’s national philanthropy efforts.

Visit Derrick’s Fundraising Page.

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.
