The April 29 giveaway event is rain or shine and will be moved to Memorial Hall Gym (directly across from Alumni Stadium) in the event of rain or storms.
Bayhealth is partnering with Free Bikes 4 Kidz (FB4K), a nonprofit organization geared toward helping all kids ride into a happier, healthier childhood by providing donated bikes to those most in need.
As we all know, developing healthy movement habits early is so important. Regular physical activity can help children build strong bones, improve cardio fitness, reduce the symptoms of anxiety and depression, and much more.
While the simple thrill of riding a bike is one that often motivates kids to move, many kids don't have a bike to ride.
We're bringing community members and resources together to distribute wheels and helmets to kids in need identified by local charities. This collaboration gives more than just a bike—we're providing a healthier future for children as we carry out our Bayhealth mission—to strengthen the health of our community, one life at a time.
Visit FB4K.org to learn more about the organization and its impact.
Please plan to join us Saturday, April 29 at 1 pm at Delaware State University Alumni Stadium for our first FB4K Delaware Bike Giveaway Event!
We’re looking for volunteers to help out before and during the event. We’ll distribute more than 100 bikes and helmets to local kids in need and provide bike safety, health information and fun activities for them and their families.
Be sure to follow FB4K Delaware on Facebook for more updates.
Please contact Bayhealth Chief Wellness Officer Dr. Tom Vaughan at Tom@FB4KDelaware.org for more information on supporting or becoming more involved in this non-profit organization.
