Bikes for Tykes
As per our Obsession, we think every kid should have the experience of riding a bike. To move towards this goal we have initiated a Bikes for Tykes program right here in North Vancouver. The program was started in Naples, Florida 20 years ago and has grown and expanded across North America with 2 other programs in Canada (Montreal and Calgary) in addition to ours.
Each year we partner with Family Services of the North Shore and other care agencies to help place previously loved kids bikes to under-privileged kids. We have placed over 100 bikes a year since 2005. In November we start asking for bikes to be donated and then through November and December we fix them up. We of course could not do it without the help of the North Shore Outlook, Family Services of the North Shore and various other benefactors.
