The 13th Annual David Feltner 72-Hour Memorial Bike-a-Thon was completed on Sept. 30 just prior to Purdue’s dominating homecoming win over Illinois with the chapter raising $7,545 for people with disabilities.
Up to three stationary bikes were ridden for nearly 200 hours and other volunteers worked nearly 100 others manning a donation table over the course of three days that started at 1 p.m. on Sept. 27. During that time chapter members, alumni, guests and a staff member of The Ability Experience rode bikes.
The event is named after Feltner who died in 2011 of a rare form of soft tissue cancer while an undergraduate fraternity member. Feltner was very involved in the chapter’s annual fund-raising and programming for The Ability Experience, the national fraternity’s outreach program for people with disabilities.
