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.

For more information, search for “Bike 4 Bikes” on www.active.com or email Krista Kim at kkim@olsh.org.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
