A summer dedicating several days and weeks to serving others sets anyone apart from the societal norm. They are selfless individuals that put others before themselves. They are leaders that strive for excellence and don’t settle for mediocrity. They are Pi Alphas. Pi Alphas are members of an elite society that have completed a summer event on behalf of Push America. These members successfully rode their bike across the country on Journey of Hope, trekked across Florida on Gear Up Florida, or completed an elaborate construction project on Build America. Over 1,500 Pi Kappa Phis are part of this exclusive club, which equates to less than 1% of the membership that make up all of Pi Kappa Phi fraternity. Pi Alphas are extremely dedicated to Push America and the success of the organization. The lifelong membership has brought these individuals back to Push America in many ways. Here are some opportunities for how Pi Alphas can stay involved:

How many summers go by where you wish you could be back on the road to climb one more hill just so you get to experience the epic downhill? What about waking up on a Saturday morning wishing you could be building a fishing dock for someone in need rather than mowing your own lawn? As a Pi Alpha, we encourage you to stop day dreaming about those times and get back involved with the Gear Up Florida, Build America or Journey of Hope this summer. Push America encourages you to share the experiences you once had years ago with the Pi Kapps that are having their lives changed today.

Push America has been hosting city events for a number of years, centered around our summer events. What better way to share some stories about your experience than with a bunch of fellow Pi Alphas. City events are always low-key and geared towards bringing Pi Alphas up to speed on what’s new with Push America. Every year we have events in Seattle, San Francisco, Denver and Washington, D.C. We also encourage fellow Pi Alphas to help organize events in their local area when teams come through. Keep a lookout for city events coming your way!For more information about city events, click here.
Pi Alphas have shown over the years to be the most dedicated individuals to Push America. They recruit chapter brothers for future events or participate in Push America events, Pi Alphas are always looking to further the mission of our organization. Advocacy on our behalf helps ensure brothers will have similar experiences that will have a profound impact on their lives and the lives of people with disabilities. For that, we are grateful.Pi Alphas have also been the most committed donors to Push America, which has continued to sustain our organization and present new opportunities. Push America would like to introduce you to an opportunity called the 77 Society. The 77 Society is designed so our members can donate to Push America monthly. A recurring contribution to Push America will help ensure opportunities for future Pi Alphas and Pi Kapps from around the country the chance to participate in Push America events.To become a member of the 77 Society, click here.
