The brothers of Pi Rho dedicate much of their time and passion to local organizations near campus, but the philanthropy of the fraternity is an organization called Ryan’s Quest. The non-profit group was founded by the parents of a young boy named Ryan when he was diagnosed with Duchene’s Muscular Dystrophy. Now Ryan’s Quest has joined a massive group of similar organizations all searching for a cure; the Duchene Alliance. Pi Rho was touched by the story and inspired by their purpose and has served Ryan’s Quest for the past two years.
