Free Event Rolls onto Campus — Journey of Hope is June 15

Posted: May 15, 2018

The public is invited to enjoy a number of activities to celebrate Journey of Hope, the Pi Kappa Phi cycling team’s friendship visit to the college, from 5 to 7:30 p.m. Friday, June 15.

The event is presented by Western Nevada College and the Nevada Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities.

Besides visiting with the participating cyclists, the public can connect with local organizations committed to serving and supporting those with disabilities. There will be food and music, as well as children activities such as bounce house, face painting and balloon animals located in the grass fronting the Joe Dini Building.

Since 2014, WNC has hosted a group of philanthropic-minded cyclists who travel across the country to help people with disabilities. Journey of Hope is part of Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity’s national efforts to serve people with disabilities. Their annual journey spans 32 states and 12,000 combined miles of cycling.
