Trips for Kids raised US$15,000 in a fundraiser at the Cougar Mountain Classic this past weekend in Sonoma, California.

"This was our first year holding the swap at Infineon and we were delighted with the results," said Marilyn Price, director for the non-profit Trips for Kids. "We know cycling enthusiasts, bargain shoppers and collectors found some good deals and the event proceeds will help almost 6,000 kids experience the joy and challenge of a Trips for Kids mountain bike adventure this year."

The 16th Annual Bike Swap featured a wide selection of bicycles, clothing, and accessories. Individuals and companies within and outside the bicycle industry donate merchandise all year round, which is sold at the swap meet and at the Trips for Kids' Re-Cyclery Bike Shop in San Rafael, California. The sale of these items covers more than half of the organization's annual operating budget.
