50 Bikes for 50 Kids
What: 50 Bikes for 50 Kids is a community service event that matches teams of volunteers with well-deserving kids to help assemble 50 new quality bikes.
When: Monday, January 21, 2019, Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a National Day of Service.
Who: Kids in grades 5–12 are nominated by local organizations for demonstrating traits such as respect, responsibility and citizenship. After nominations are reviewed, 50 kids are selected to build and receive a new bike during a highly energized daylong event. The kids and volunteers experience the rewards of teamwork, volunteerism, and community.
Why: 50 Bikes for 50 Kids demonstrates the value of what hard work, community and volunteerism can accomplish while introducing kids, and the entire community, to the healthy, life-long benefits of bicycling.
