LCA 2018 graduate Samuel Corum and his fraternity, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Kentucky Beta of Western Kentucky University, have been making a difference world-wide. In its second year, “Run So They Can Ride” raises money to assist people in thirteen different poverty-stricken countries with transportation, providing specially-made bicycles so they are no longer required to walk. On Novemeber 2, 2018, active brothers will run 95 miles from WKU to Middle Tennessee State University to raise 100 bikes alone. Donned after their strength, “Buffalo Bicycles” are “durable, featuring steel alloy frames, forks and spokes and a rear carrier capacity rated up to 10kg.”  The fraternity brothers’ fundraiser is branched from World Bicycle Relief, the ten-year old company that designs and distributes the “Buffalo Bicycles.”

Through Corum’s fraternity, students, parents, and faculty members at LCA can help further the impact through donating money. For a single bike, it is one-hundred and forty-seven dollars, but every donation helps the cause. To donate, go to: oneday100bikes2018.worldbicyclerelief.org.
