All attendees and their guests will be participating in a Bike Build activity on Saturday morning. Dividing into teams, participants will utilize the tools of organization, delegation, communication -and some mechanical skills to build bikes for children. Every bicycle built includes a cool helmet and lock for safety and security.
Teams use their creative skills to decorate the bikes and helmets and write a card of encouragement for the kids. Once the bike is built it will be safety inspected and moved to a staging area for delivery.
All bicycles will be donated locally to children in under privileged schools via Arizona Helping Hands, a local organization that provides essential needs for children in foster care.
