UMass Fraternity Pedals for Over a Day to Raise Money

AMHERST, Mass. (WGGB) – Thursday, UMass fraternity members pedaled hard to help people struggling with mental disabilities.

Members of Pi Kappa Phi are hosting a 30 hour stationary bike-a-thon.

The goal is to raise awareness and money for “Pedal for Push.” It’s an organization that helps people with mental disabilities.

In fact, it allows members of the fraternity to build ramps for local homes.

The money raised will also go to benefit Best Buddies, a local program that pairs up mentors with people who have mental disabilities.
