Fraternity cycling for disabled holding events Friday around Carson City

After cycling 35 miles, the Journey of Hope North Route Team will arrive in Carson City, where they will hold two friendship visits — one at 1 p.m. Friday at the Boys and Girls Club of Western Nevada and another at 5:30 p.m. the same day at People First’s Nevada Chapter. The group, which is cycling 3,600 miles across the country to raise and awareness for people with disabilities, will be signing autographs, dancing, and meeting with anyone who attends.

Lunch will be available at the event at the The Boys & Girls Clubs of Western Nevada, 1870 Russell Way; dinner will be at People First, 896 W. Nye Lane.

Journey of Hope, organized by The Ability Experience, is a cycling trek that raises funds and awareness for people with disabilities. Every cyclist commits to raising at least $5,500 in order to take part in this event. Combine their individual efforts with corporate sponsorships, and the 2015 Journey of Hope teams will raise more than $550,000 for people with disabilities across the nation.
