Got Bikes?...Ride 'em! - Part 4

This afternoon was our 4th installment of the Got Bikes?...Ride 'em! program. Today was exciting because we were in my district and I got to see several of the children from Ferncreek Elementary that are in my mentee's class. Today at the Colonialtown Neighborhood Center we had over 70 kids and gave away 4 bikes and helmets.

Commissioner Sheehan was also present and she informed me of her "Wheels for Kids" program where she gets 100 bicycles, helmets, and locks to 100 children on Christmas Day. Pretty amazing program and I will be keeping it in mind when she starts to gather bikes to donate again.

This Saturday we are joining the Kid's Health Fair and Field Day at Dr. James R. Smith Center on Brunton Blvd., from 10am-1pm.
