USD Fraternity Hosts 9th Annual Taylor Trudeau Cycle for Life
Taylor Trudeau Cycle for Life honors a PIKE brother, Taylor Trudeau, who lost his battle with leukemia in 2008. Cycle for Life keeps Trudeau’s memory alive.
This year’s Taylor Trudeau Cycle for Life raised over $1,200 to benefit the M.D. Anderson Center to support patients and families facing a diagnosis of blood cancers such as leukemia, lymphoma and melanoma. Since the inception of the event in 2011, the USD PIKES have raised more than $15,000 for patients and the cutting-edge research done around the clock to find cures for blood cancers at the center. Overall, the PIKES has raised more than $275,000 for charitable causes since 2011.
Pi Kappa Alpha President, Logan Rahn, a second-year business marketing major from Sioux City, Iowa, is proud of the impact the PIKES have in the Vermillion community – and beyond.
“Thank you to all those who took part in our event and provided gifts in support of this important cause,” Rahn said. “We are honored to help patients and families.”
