Free Bikes for Kids!

Over break, I helped facilitate an AWESOME event at my internship!  Los Cochinos, a motorcycle riding club, held their annual “Toyz in the Hood Run” where they donate brand new bicycles and toys to kids living in Denver’s public housing neighborhoods.  At my internship site, we had several hundred kids and families show up to receive toys and bikes.  Fifty of our regular attendees received brand new bikes just for participating in our program consistently.  It was great to see such a large turnout and even better to see how happy these kids were to receive their new bicycles.

The following article was written about the event: http://www.denverpost.com/recommended/ci_13986789
