North Park charity bike ride scheduled
Our Lady of the Sacred Heart High School (OLSH) students are riding their bikes on May 5 in North Park to help raise money to buy adaptive bicycles for children with special needs. They are looking for others from the community to join in and support this cause. The event is being coordinated by Krista Kim, a junior at OLSH.
Registration fees and sponsor donations go to Variety the Children's Charity (a non-profit organization) to provide the bikes and identify where they are needed.
The goal of Variety the Children's Charity is to enable children with special needs to live life to the fullest with a focus on mobility, independence and social inclusion. They aim to purchase as many bikes as possible for these children. Each bike costs approximately $2,000.
Through community participation in the bike ride event and business/corporate sponsorships they are determined to reach their goal. They are still accepting donations and sponsorships and appreciate all donations.
Participants registered by April 27 will receive a Bike 4 Bikes T-shirt. Limited quantities will be available the day of the event. Walkers are welcome too.
