Charity Cycling Tour to Stop in Las Vegas | Charity
The philanthropy arm of a national fraternity will bring a national charity cycling tour to Las Vegas.
Three dozen cyclists participating in Journey of Hope will visit Las Vegas June 19-20 as a stop on their 4,000-mile cycling event across the country to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities.
The team will arrive at noon June 19 at Veterans Memorial Leisure Services Center, 101 N. Pavilion Center Drive. City representatives will present a proclamation from Mayor Carolyn Goodman. Team members will participate in a wheelchair basketball demonstration with local athletes, present a disability-awareness puppet show and make a bicycle safety presentation for summer campers at the center.
They later will go bowling at the Santa Fe lanes with participants in the city’s Adaptive Recreation program and spend Thursday at Wet ‘n’ Wild with Lorenzi Adaptive Program summer campers.
The Journey of Hope team consists of men from Pi Kappa Phi chapters across the country. The team will cycle an average of 75 miles per day, a total of 4,000 miles, with groups beginning in Los Angeles, Seattle and San Francisco, and ending together Aug. 10 in Washington, D.C.
