Bike Day A Great Success!
Bike Day 2017 was a huge success! This was the first year for our annual Bike Day to be held in conjunction with our Discovery Spring Break day camp and it was the best one yet! For the first time this year, our Discovery day camp was held for five days rather than the three days it has previously run. Following the newly expanded week of day camp Bike Day was held on the last Saturday of Spring Break, making it our best Bike Day event ever!
In addition to the several brand new bicycles and lots of bike related prizes that we give away at Bike Day every year, we were excited this year to have over 20 freshly refurbished used bicycles to give away to children without bicycles. We have been blessed to be able to team up with the Denison Police Department for this special bicycle ministry. The Denison Police Department has been periodically donating trailer loads of unclaimed biycles to us for the purpose of refurbishing them and donating them back to the community. We have a dedicated bicycle repair room and a team of very dedicated men and women who have worked tirelessly to get the bicycles back in top shape. We have had the opportunity to donate many of these bicycles to needy children, as well as to some adults who were otherwise without transportation to get to work.
