2016 Bicycles For Kids

KABC 7 EYEWITNESS NEWS  2016 PVG Foundation Bicycle Giveaway


Sunday, April 17th, 2016

100 Trek bikes given away along with locks and helmets.

Hundreds of kids submitted essays, 100 were picked to receive a new bike thanks to PVG Foundation and Boys & Girls Club of Los Angeles Harbor.

To participate, children ages 8 to 18 years are invited to write an essay explaining why they would like their own bike, how it would improve their lives and how they would care for their bikes. With answers spanning from a lack of school transportation to avoiding bullying to simply wanting to spend quality time with their family at the park, we are always touched by the meaning a new bike can bring to a child’s life.

Thanks to Larry Prutch, Alan Goldstein, Cengiz Volkan, Mike Lansing, PVG FOUNDATION, Boys & Girls Clubs of the Los Angeles Harbor, Buffalo Fire Department Reataurant, et. al. 2161 Cabrillo Ave, Torrance, CA.
