Marine Gunnery Sergeant on Personal Mission to Raise 10,000 Bikes as Holiday Gifts for Deserving Children with the BikesForGood Holiday Bike Drive
Date:11/13/2013

Richmond, VA (PRWEB) November 13, 2013

12-year-old Steve Gardner was overjoyed when he received his first ten speed bicycle in 1981 as a prize for winning the local read-a-thon competition.
