Bikes for Kids Utah gives away 1,000 bikes

Just in time for summer vacation, 1,000 pre-selected second graders received brand new bicycles, helmets and a t-shirt from the Bikes for Kids Utah Bike Giveaway on May 30. The festival-style event in Murray, Utah, also included a Bike Safety Rodeo and instruction on nutrition.

"From the school administrators and the parents to the children and sponsors, everyone involved is filled with a sense of gratitude to be part of giving bikes to kids," said Debbie Reid, founder and executive director of Bikes for Kids Utah.

The next Bikes for Kids fundraising event will be the Bikes for Kids second annual Utah Red and Blue Time Trial on Saturday, August 29 followed by a dinner and silent auction at La Caille to be held the evening of September 1, 2009.
