Pi Kappa Phi’s Alpha Eta chapter at Samford University hosted United Cerebral Palsy of Greater Birmingham at Samford’s April 9 baseball game against the University of Alabama at Birmingham.
Pi Kappa Phi has worked with UCPGB previously through its Push America program. Push America is the fraternity’s philanthropy and was founded in 1977. The purpose of Push America is to instill lifelong service in Pi Kappa Phi members and enhance the quality of life for people with disabilities.
UCPGB participants attended the game and had the opportunity to throw the opening pitch. Family and friends were also welcome. Pi Kappa Phi and UCPGB had informational material and donation opportunities available throughout the night.
UCP of Greater Birmingham serves more than 3,000 children and adults with disabilities including but not limited to intellectual disabilities, traumatic brain injury, developmental disabilities, cerebral palsy, autism, Down syndrome and spina bifida.
