GySgt Steve Gardner, received a community service award from the state of Virginia for his efforts running 1/3 of Virginia’s Toys-for-Tots program during the late 90’s and helped raise over 5,000 new bikes for the children of Roanoke, VA. (Reference: http://lis.virginia.gov/cgi-bin/legp604.exe?971+ful+HR29 ).
Steve’s vision is to inspire the world to donate 1 Billion community service hours. BikesForGood is a way of building on the Roanoke, VA’s bike collection and helping children across the USA (and maybe the world) realized the joy of receiving a bike and the lifelong enjoyment that can follow.
Consider helping put a smile on a child by simply following on twitter, posting a pic, or sharing an encouraging video, and consider sharing with your friends this challenge to society.
BikesForGood is in the process of becoming a 501©3 tax exempt organization, and is part of Challenge2Society, a registered Virginia benefits corporation, and member of 1%ForThePlant.
