Herndon Middle School (HMS) Bike Giveaway
RBC staff Bruce Peltzer supported the staff at HMS bike giveaway program on December 16th where 10 bikes with helmets were given away. Nine kids arrived on Saturday to claim their bikes which were adjusted for height. They also received helmets (donated by RBC) that were adjusted for fit. The kids then took a few test spins around the cafeteria! The smiles on their faces were fantastic!
Especially cool is that one student who went through the program at HMS, learning to repair bikes, is still participating now that he's moved on to Herndon High School. From the HMS program, he landed first an internship and now a job at The Bike Lane!
