SPARTANBURG, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Members of the Pi Kappa Phi fraternity are cycling across the country to raise money and spend time with disabled children and adults - and they stopped in Spartanburg on Wednesday.

The Journey of Hope team is biking 75 miles a day, with fraternity brothers from across the country aiming to each raise at least $5,500 for people with disabilities.

Their ride brought them from Atlanta to Spartanburg's Charles Lea Center on Wednesday before heading to the Carolina Miracle League in Boiling Springs. On Thursday, the team will head to Lake Wylie in Fort Mill before continuing further north.

The Journey of Hope ride is organized by Push America and covers 32 states, cycling more than 4,000 miles in an effort to raise more than $500,000. The ride's three routes started in Seattle, San Francisco and Los Angeles heading east across the country, all ending in Washington, DC.
