Ride for Bikes

The public charity, Ride for Bikes announced that this year it will be awarding 600 bikes to the children of southeastern New Mexico.

That is the most bikes they have done to date. Over the past 12 years, Ride for Bikes has awarded bikes to children in the area. Organizations who have received bikes are: CASA, Grammy’s House, Heart’s Desire, Headstart, Lovington and Artesia public schools and Big Brothers and Big Sisters. More than 4,000 bikes have been donated. They are asking for help to meet this objective. This target is set so that no child is left out.

Any dollar amount or donated bike does make a difference and is greatly appreciated. Volunteers can participate in putting the bikes together on Dec. 8.
