Cycle of Giving 2016 – Now Only 2 Weeks Away!

Cycle of Giving 2016
The Cycle of Giving starts in 2 weeks! Over 200 volunteers will converge on Rossbrook House to repair up to 400 bikes for kids in need during one marathon 24-hour session.

Even if you’ve not worked on bikes before, we need lots of help cleaning bikes, making cards to go with every donated bike, and prepping food for hungry volunteers.

To sign up, or find out more information about volunteering, please email cycleofgiving2016@gmail.com

We’re also trying to raise $15,000 so that we can continue to run some of our amazing youth programs throughout the year, like the Earn-a-Bike program which teaches newcomer girls the basics of bike repair. Visit our Donate page to find out how you can help!
