Nov 10, 2015 by Skye McLeod
The November Student Organization of the Month award goes to Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity!
Pi Kappa Phi hosted a week long philanthropy event during the month of September in order to raise money for their self founded charity organization, The Ability Experience. During the week of September 21st Pi Kappa Phi raised nearly $5,000 to be donated to their charity. In addition to raising money, Pi Kappa Phi hosted an array of physical events and involvement opportunities that emphasized their goal of supporting people with disabilities and creating a community where the abilities of all people are recognized and valued. Pi Kappa Phi also participates in Gear Up Florida every summer. This summer, four members of Pi Kappa Phi raised $2,500 each to be donated to The Ability Experience and biked over 460 miles from Miami to Tallahassee, FL in order to raise awareness for disabilities. In addition to their philanthropic endeavors, the brothers of Pi Kappa Phi are also involved in many aspects of campus life including having members on Mortar Board, Interfraternity Council, and in the Pre-Physical Therapy Club.
