A college student’s typical weekend involves sleeping in, binge watching Netflix, and hours of Fortnite. But, the brothers of Phi Kappa Tau traveled out to Mt. Gilead, Ohio to volunteer at Flying Horse Farms.
15 brothers made the trek to give back to their philanthropy and prepare the camp for an upcoming event.
Flying Horse Farms is a branch of SeriousFun Children’s Networks. The camp provides a magically place for children with terminal illness to be a kid and step outside of their comfort zone. Brothers of Phi Kappa Tau are incredibly fortunate to have a strong relationship with the camp and have been volunteering their since its founding in 2011.
Brothers focused on cleaning and preparing the camp for their upcoming Regional Conference leadership training program which happened, Saturday, February 10. Projects they focused on included cleaning the dining hall and medical center and organizing the garage. By the end of the day, the camp was ready to go, and it couldn’t have been done without the help of Phi Tau.
“It was my first trip to Flying Horse Farms.” Says Joshua Petkash. “I’ve heard so many amazing stories about this place and when we got there I could feel the energy in the air and it felt great giving back to this incredible organization.”
