Road to Tucson, Part 2 – Community Comes Together

6 0 744

As we are less than a month away until we begin our journey to Tucson, Arizona, we are excited to announce that we are very close to our fundraising goal.

Due to some scheduling conflicts and a torn ACL, our original seven-member team has been cut to five, setting our goal at $20,000.

To recap from my first post, five brothers of the Alpha Epsilon Pi fraternity at the University of Maryland will be traveling to Tucson in November to participate in the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation charity bike ride.

Over the weekend, AEPi held an extremely successful philanthropy event at our chapter house. Along with hosting a BBQ and selling tank tops, our brotherhood collectively rode two stationary bikes for eight straight hours throughout the day. Turns out 80+ frat guys having sore butts really brings a brotherhood together.

It was truly phenomenal to see so much support from the University of Maryland community as well as friends and family of our chapter. We are proud to say we have currently raised over $15,000 for Type 1 diabetes research.

As we make our final push before the Tour de Tucson, we would love to have the support of the bikers, skiers, boarders, climbers and overall rad people that comprise the Spread Stoke community. Every little donation goes a long way!
