100 local children received brand new bicycles
WILLEMSTAD – Bikes 4 Kids Curaçao Foundation donated 100 new bicycles, along with a lock and helmet, to underprivileged children during its Fifth Annual Bikes 4 Kids Bike Give Away on Sunday, December 11, 2016 , at Planet Willemstad. The children also received safety instructions and riding tips from local cyclists. The goal of Bikes 4 Kids is to donate 100 brand new bicycles every year to children whose families have little or no money for extras such as a bicycle. Last year, Bikes 4 Kids was able to donate 100 brand new bicycles. Bikes 4 Kids Curaçao Foundation is a non-profit organization that depends on donations from companies and local individuals. 100% of the proceeds will go to the children. We want to recognize our sponsors: Digicel, Trio Penotti, Kooyman, Cost-U-Less, Rotary Club Willemstad, Jonalisa, MCB and Insel Air along with all of the volunteers that helped this year in organizing this successful event.
