AMIKids Donate Bikes
We have a lot going on at AMIKids Big Cypress. This week we dropped off 16 more bikes to the kids at Everglades School. The motto of Bikes for Tykes, of which we are a a part, is “A Bike for Every Kid.” At least in Everglades City, we are not going to stop until every kid that wants a bike has one! Our students get bikes that need fixing from Bikes for Tykes and we work on them in our bike shop at the school. After we get enough ready we deliver them. The students learn mechanical skills. We are getting ready to start a new certification program from Park Tools in bicycle repair, which the students can use to get a job or create an independent business.
