Students took a sledgehammer to a car Monday in front of the University Center to raise money for “Push America,” a charity for severely handicapped people.

The car smash was part of a week-long fundraising event by fraternity Pi Kappa Phi called Push Week. The next event is a wheelchair basketball tournament from 6 to 8 p.m. in Cullen Oaks, in which the Rollin’ Coogs will play against a team made up of members of a sorority and Pi Kappa Phi.

Push America was founded in 1976 by members of Pi Kappa Phi and has remained exclusively the fraternity’s charity.
