Brother Allen and supporting New Members before intramural basketball Game Time! This season of intramural basketball has been full of excitement and laughs. For every game we have had a huge fan-base on the sidelines and they are only getting bigger. We have started to create themes for these game and it has been a huge success. A few of our New Members came out and supported us as broadcasters as we put a stomping on TKE. These events are one of our best ways to get school out of our mind for a bit and cheer on our brothers to victory!

  Magic PIKE The annual Fryberger competition has just passed and once again PIKE put on another memorable show. As a chapter we are very familiar with doing well in this competition year in and year out. We took the stage once again and made the crowd went crazy, we performed our routine (Magic PIKE), and to say the least no one in the crowd knew what was coming. This is always an amazing time spent working hard and goofing off with your brothers. It really helps put our creativity into play, if you have never been to a Fryberger I highly recommend coming to a show. Cycle for Life

Cycle for Life

 

  The Taylor Trudeau Cycle for Life Philanthropy event was created in memory for a fellow Brother from the University of New Hampshire at the Gamma Mu Chapter of Pi Kappa Alpha. After a year-long battle with Leukemia, he passed away in August 2008, the brothers of Gamma Mu decided to create a stationary bike marathon in order to raise money and awareness for Leukemia, Lymphoma, and Melanoma blood cancer research. This year the Kappa Zeta chapter will be holding its second event on March 28 from 2-6pm on the third floor of the Student Recreation Center. Last year we raised $1,500 with several campus groups participating. This year we hope to double the participation and raise at least $3,000.  130 PIKE chapters nationally have raised $250,000 to fund Phase 1 of a clinical trial. For more info please visit the Cycle for Life Foundation webpage at http://taylorcycleforlife.org/ and be sure to visit our personal page at http://taylorcycleforlife.org/chapters/university-of-louisville or contact Billy Mitchell the current Philanthropy Chairman at William.mitchell@louisville.edu.     Brother Shout Out
