(PRESS RELEASE)_Boca Raton, FL — The joy of summertime bike rides was made possible for hundreds of local kids thanks to the Boca West Children’s Foundation’s (BWCF) annual Bikes for Tikes program. Bikes for Tikes provides a bike and helmet to children who might not have the opportunity to experience the rite of passage of owning a bicycle otherwise. Fuller Center held pre-kindergarten pre-graduation parties during which the children were presented with bikes:
Parents were invited to pick up the bikes on the West Campus at 10130 185th St. S., Boca Raton.
“Fuller Center students are from hardworking, under-resourced families. For these families, the purchase of a bike can be out of reach,” said Pamela Weinroth, Executive Director/COO of Boca West Children’s Foundation. “The generosity and support we receive from the community makes a world of difference in a child’s life!”
“Seeing the joy on the kids’ faces as they receive their bikes is truly priceless and a testament to the impact that this program has on these children’s lives,” said Richard Zenker, Board Chair of the Boca West Children’s Foundation.
Sponsors include Let’s Have a Smile Foundation, Palm Beach Country Club Foundation, and Boca Raton Regional Hospital.
“We are so grateful to Boca West Children’s Foundation for the many bikes for Fuller Center pre-kindergarten graduates,” said Ellyn Okrent, CEO of Fuller Center. “It’s such a wonderful way to celebrate kids who might not receive a bike otherwise.”
