This summer St. Francis grad Jake McSweeny ’16 will be riding his bike from the west coast to Washington, D.C. on the Journey of Hope to raise money and awareness for people with disabilities. He will join 115 other men from colleges and universities acros s the country who are all members of the fraternity Pi Kappa Phi. Together they will complete this 65-day, 4,000+ mile cycling trek to benefit The Ability Experience.
The Ability Experience is committed to providing shared experiences between the members of Pi Kappa Phi and people with disabilities. In working with The Ability Experience, Jake has learned so much about the impact of this special group of people. He has also discovered that there is a need nationwide to educate people on all the incredible things that people with disabilities can do. Jake’s team will be spending time with people with disabilities along the way, and striving to spread their message of acceptance and understanding to thousands of people!
Jake is extremely excited about this opportunity and he has committed to raising more than $5,500 in support of The Ability Experience by May 1, 2018.
St. Francis High School expresses its pride in St. Francis graduates who continue to live out the Franciscan virtues through their actions! Thank you for making service a priority and positively impacting the lives of so many others.
