This year we plan on giving away a record, 4,500 new bikes to disadvantaged children! We are going to achieve a milestone and give away our 23,000th bicycle. This accomplishment could not have been achieved without a collective outpouring of generosity and we should all be very proud of the role we have played in getting to this point. Our growth has been such that we are blessed to be able to give away hundreds of bikes to children attending inner city schools here in San Diego. Our biggest sponsor this year is going to be the San Diego Chargers. They will be funding the donations for one of the chosen elementary schools. Because of the success we have experienced, we have expanded beyond California and will be able to have a positive impact in four additional cities.
We believe that Bikes for Kids is a wonderful cause. 100% of the money raised goes towards the purchase of bikes and helmets. All participants involved in the process are strictly volunteers. Very simply, the more money we raise, the more bikes we are able to give away to the kids!
