KINGMAN — The Journey of Hope South Team is a group of 20 cyclists and six crew members biking across the country in support of those with disabilities and they will be arriving in Kingman on Friday, June 21.
The Journey of Hope team will be arriving after a 60-mile bike ride from Lake Havasu, part of a 4,370-mile cycling event across the country. The Journey of Hope team consists of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity men from across the country. The team will cycle an average of 75 miles per day, ending at the United States Capitol on August 10. Every cyclist commits to raising a minimum of $6,000 on behalf of people with disabilities.
The mission of The Ability Experience is to use shared experiences to support people with disabilities and develop the men of Pi Kappa Phi into servant leaders. The Ability Experience organizes The Journey of Hope and two other large service projects each summer, and is the national philanthropy of Pi Kappa Phi.
Founded in 1977, the Ability Experience is committed to raising funds and public awareness on behalf of people with disabilities. Combined with corporate sponsorships, the 2019 Journey of Hope will raise more than $750,000 toward creating shared experiences that positively impact the lives of people with disabilities across the nation.
Supporting the Kingman visit are the City of Kingman Tourism Division, The CLUB for YOUth, Lee Williams High School, the KRMC Foundation and Subway – Foods 2000.
