Welcome to the
Christmas Bike Giveaway
Entry opens on Tuesday, December 12, 2017 and closes at 8:00am CT on
Monday, December 18, 2017.
A bike is not just a “joy ride” for these kids, but often their lifeline to getting to school on time, participating in sports and other extracurricular activities. In addition, having a bike helps kids increase their physical activity while teaching them responsibility.
Here is your chance to win a free new bike and helmet!
For the Life of You Mentoring Foundation has partnered with Richardson Bike Mart - White Rock to give select 5th-grade students at Eduardo Mata Elementary School a new bike and helmet in its inaugural "Christmas Bike Giveway."
What is the mission of For the Life of You Mentoring Foundation?
For the Life of You Mentoring Foundation is a nonprofit organization connecting underserved youth to influential youth for a different reality... Life. The foundation provides in-school peer-to-peer mentoring programs to promote career and professional development opportunities to youth.
At least ten (10) Eduardo Mata 5th grade students will be presented with brand new bikes and helmets.
To be considered, 5th-grade students at Eduardo Mata Elementary School must nominate themselves by writing a short essay entitled, “What a new bike will mean to me.” Be creative. Make it fun!
Students must submit essay, with completed Waiver & Release form(s), to their teacher on Monday, December 18, 2017 by 8:00am CT. CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD WAIVER & RELEASE
