Supporting the fight against leukemia, lymphoma and melanoma, the fraternity brothers at Pi Kappa Alpha hosted the first ever Cycle for Life Thursday, Feb. 20 at the Marshall University Recreation Center. The stationary bike marathon was a fundraiser for the Taylor Cycle for Life Charitable Foundation in remembrance of Taylor Trudeau who died in 2008 after a year long battle with leukemia.
Marshall University Pi Kappa Alpha President Anthony Spano said it's all about helping out.
"It's important that we continue to research and fund and figure out a way to help those who have it and in the future prevent it," Spano said.
The foundation is totally run by volunteers and all the money they receive is donated to researchers chosen by a panel of doctors at MD Anderson, the number one cancer center in the world.
