(KSL News) A team of bicyclists traveling across the country on a 4,000 mile "Journey of Hope" took some time to cool off today at Raging Waters.

The men have been riding their bicycles across the country to raise awareness and money for people with disabilities.

"They're a lot more functional than people think, and just get the time to treat them as everybody else. Look at the people first rather than their disability," said cyclist Issac Polanco.

At each stop, the team meets with and tries to give hope to people with disabilities. They'll do just that tonight at the Lindon care center.
