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.
