      This week, one UTC group is using their fraternity house to raise money for something other than loud parties.
      The local Pi Kappa Alpha fraternity is holding a 72 hour fund raising event in conjunction with the Taylor Trudeau "Cycle For Life" charity.
      Trudeau was a Pi Kappa Alpha at the University of New Hampshire that passed away in August of 2008 after a year long battle with Leukemia. Since then, more than 100 chapters of the fraternity have held a "Cycle For Life" event.  But this one is a little different.
      "They'll ride on a bike for 12 consecutive hours, but we are going to do 72 consecutive hours, which is the whole duration of our Philanthropy week," said UTC Pi Kappa Alpha President Drew Daniel.
      "The total so far is $250,000 and we are just glad to be a small part of that. And hope we can do anything we can to increase that number," added Josh Bandy, Philanthropy Chairman for Pi Kappa Alpha.
      "A lot of people picked up two shifts in a row so they are going to be doing it for two hours in a row, which is going to be hard but people will be out here keeping them company," said Steven O'Hara.
      The local chapter plans to raise at least 10 thousand dollars for the charity.
