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.

In 1997-1999, he was part of the team that ran Virginia’s Toys-for-Tots program where they raised over 5,000 new bikes for the children of Roanoke, Virginia. His efforts won him the community service award from the State of Virginia and motivated him to bring the campaign nationwide.

“Owning a bicycle is one of the best ways to aid the physical and social development of a child. Some of my best memories as a child were built on my bicycle while exploring the neighborhood with my friends,” said Steve.

But it is not just monetary donation that Steve hopes to solicit, of equal emphasis is the awareness factor and that the message gets passed on and to encourage this, BikesForGood will be managing a social media effort to inspire the public to share their stories about owning and riding their bicycles as a kid. Whether a photo of your first bike, or a video reminiscing about your first biking experience, visitors are encouraged to share their biking memories on Bike for Good’s Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest pages.

“Stories have the power to inspire, and what better way to spread the message than to have people talking about their childhood memories on the bike,” added Steve. “The aim is to get the entire co
