We held our 4th annual Bikes for Kids giveaway at Willard Elementary School in December. The 3rd graders were asked to write an essay on what they would do to help others if they had a magical bike. The best essay from each 3rd grade class would be awarded a bicycle that included a lock and a helmet. What the students didn’t know was that everyone would be receiving a free bicycle. Watch what happens when students find out that everyone will be awarded a bike…
