575 Pizzeria event benefits disabled athletes

Amarillo, TX-  575 Pizzeria in Amarillo held a pub crawl today to benefit disabled athletes.

People, Pints and Pedals is all it took to set the party in motion.

Those 21 and older rode on their bikes from pub to pub today.

575, IDK Sports Bar and the Golden Light Cantina all participated in the event, which aims to raise money to purchase wheelchairs for local handicapped athletes.

"Each of the handicap wheelchairs actually costs $3,000, so we are hoping to buy at least three chairs this year," Amanda Kelleher, Owner of 575, said. "We are hoping to raise $9,000."

Proceeds go to One Chair At A Time, a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for those with physical disabilities.

The organization also provides education and opportunities to play sports.
