Transcript All photos by Houstonian staff PUSH America is the national philanthropic organization of the Pi Kappa Phi Fraternity and raises funds and awareness for the disabled while promoting volunteerism. The biggest event held by PUSH is the PUSH America crosscountry bicycle ride, which takes place each summer. Afternoons and evenings on the 74-day cross-country trek are set aside for working with members of the communities the cyclists pass through in order to promote disability awareness and build friendships with disabled residents. Although Pi Kappa Phi's UH chapter did not have a cyclist in this year's ride, Kevin Vistentin was chosen to be on the support team, which drives along the route making sure that the cyclists have everything that they need, toting equipment and generally serving as ambassadors for PUSH and Pi Kappa Phi. "I think this is the opportunity of a lifetime to help my fellow man and to represent my university and my organization nationally/' Vistentin said. "I'm really grateful for this opportunity to be a part of something that is bigger than my immediate world, to be a part of something great." The participants are each required to raise at least $5,000 for the organization without the help of their chapters These funds go toward building handicap-accessible ploy units, funding ramps and purchasinq equipment to help increase mobility for the disabled. Participants in the ride and other members of Pi Kappa Phi get to experience this part ol the organization hands-on during PUSH Week, an alternative spring break program where they build the ramps and play units themselves. "PUSH Week was a blast," Vistentin said. "I felt really good about myself for doing something worthwhile with my spring break." For more information, visit www.pushamerica.org.
