Also, the calendar year-end national Ability Experience rankings show the Purdue chapter earning No. 2 annual fund-raising standing nationally from among the nearly 200 Pi Kappa Phi chapters nationwide. The chapter raised $18,452, which included on-campus programming and alumni support.
The chapter’s fall semester programming was limited in its ability to raise due to campus Protect Purdue protocols restricting gatherings and events due to Covid-19 concerns.
Despite those limitations, 10th Annual David Feltner Memorial Bike-a-Thon held in late November raised $7,500 for the Ability Experience. Included in that total was an individual alumnus $5,000 donation through the chapter’s fund-raising portal. In fact, nearly 90 percent of the donations from late November to the end of the year were online donations made by parents, alumni and Feltner family members.
The annual bike-a-thon is held in memory of David Feltner, who was heavily involved in Ability Experience programming as a student. He died in 2011 due to a rare form of cancer while a chapter member.
