Karl Ochs is a member of Pi Kappa Phi at Michigan State University and has been a volunteer for the last year at Helping Hands Respite Care’s Adult Day Center. This summer, he is riding across the country with other fraternity members from the west coast to Washington D.C. to raise money for people with disabilities through the fraternity’s nonprofit, The Ability Experience.
Helping Hands Hosts The Ability Experience with a Summer Picnic
They will be making a friendship visit at Helping Hands Respite Care’s Adult Day facility at 201 Hillside Court East Lansing on Sunday July 26th at approximately 12:30 pm. They will stop for food and to rest, with plans to be back on the road by 3:00 pm. In honor of their fundraising ride, Helping Hands Respite Care will be having a picnic for all of our families. The Center will be open (at no charge to the participants and all other clients we serve) from 11:00AM to 3:00PM on Sunday, July 26th. Please come down and enjoy food, fun, and games. Meet the cyclists and wish them well as they continue on their journey to Washington D.C. For more information or to RSVP for this fun event please call the office at 517-372-6671.
Clients, family, staff, sponsors, and donors are all welcome. City dignitaries (Mayor Nathan Triplett and staff) will be invited. The East Lansing Farmers market will be in full swing right next door to our party; explore all the goodies – fresh fruits, vegetables and meats available.
Remember these men are riding to raise funds to support families with disabilities; so, come out enjoy a picnic meal courtesy of Helping Hands Respite Care and show your support for the whole crew, and our local volunteer Karl Ochs.
