(South Carolina) – Katie is a 1st grade teacher. One of her students mentioned that his family couldn’t afford the bike he really wanted. Many of the families where they live are low-income and she didn’t want any of the students to miss out on a part of childhood by not riding a bicycle. She decided to raise money so that each of the 650 students could get a bicycle. In just 3 months, she raised over $80,000!
Radio Flyer also donated 100 big-wheel tricycles and training bikes for the preschoolers and a local business donated bells and locks.
