They’re back.

Since 2014, Western Nevada College 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.


WNC and the Nevada Governor’s Council on Developmental Disabilities will present a number of activities near the Dini Library & Student Center to celebrate the cycling team’s friendship visit from 5 to 8 p.m. on Friday, June 16. The festivities will include activities for children, free food, disability-related resource tables, music, dancing and raffle prizes.

Besides visiting with the participating cyclists, the public can connect with local organizations committed to serving and supporting those with disabilities.

For more information, contact Susan Trist, WNC’s coordinator of Disability Support Services at 775-445-4459.
