March Meeting Program - Bikes for Tykes
When: Thursday, March 6, 7pm
Where: Hardesty Regional Library, just east of Memorial on 93rd St
Join Tommy Chavez at our March monthly meeting to learn more about Bike for Tikes of Tulsa.
Founded in 2008, Bikes for Tikes donated just 22 bikes in their first year year in Tulsa; last year (2013), with the help of countless volunteers and many generous donors, they donated 1048 bikes to needy, abused and less privileged kids ... all right here in Tulsa!
Bikes for Tykes of Tulsa is a 501 (c) 3 non profit organization providing new bikes and helmets to less fortunate kids in the Tulsa area. They partner with many other non profit organizations as well as schools to help them bring smiles to young faces in our community.
The organization's goal is to make a difference in our community by giving less fortunate kids a chance to enjoy the freedom that riding a bike brings. Most of these kids have experienced nothing but negativity in their lives and Bike for Tykes hopes to change their outlook by showing them the gift of giving and owning and riding a bike!
