DENVER (CBS4) – Some cyclists are riding across the U.S. to raise money and support for people with disabilities and Tuesday they arrived in Denver.
Pi Kappa Phi fraternity started the ride. It’s called the Journey of Hope and is put on by Push America.
Riders will cycle about 75 miles a day for 2 months, ending in Washington, D.C. in mid-August. They’ll raise more than $500,000. Team members say that’s is where the gratification comes in.
“Part of what we do is pass out grant checks while we are riding and raising support,” said Eli Armstrong, Journey of Hope rider.
More funds will be generated Wednesday for the Special Olympics. The cyclists will ride in Pedal for Pennies at City Park and receive donations for each lap completed.
