GEAR UP FLORIDA 2022
Since 1997, over 500 Pi Kappa Phi men have participated in Gear Up Florida. Gear Up Florida was created with one mission in mind: to reach out to as many people as possible across the state of Florida, spreading a message of acceptance and understanding on behalf of people with disabilities.
THE JOURNEY: MIAMI – TALLAHASSEE | 14 DAYS | 800 MILES
One state, countless memories. This 800-mile cycling event kicks off on the shores of Miami, travels through the Florida orange fields, Gulf Coast, Orlando, Jacksonville and culminates at the State Capitol in Tallahassee. The team spreads a message of acceptance and understanding to communities in Florida through friendship visit with local groups that supports people with disabilities.
