The bike donations are part of the 7th Annual Stater Bros. Charities Kfroggers 4 Kids Radiothon presented by ConAgra Foods which took place on October 14 and 15, 2008. The students who will be receiving the new bikes will gather outside the Arrowhead Credit Union Stadium where the doors will open at 12 p.m. The bike recipients will be accompanied by their family and friends who watch as they run onto the field to get their brand new bike.

In addition, the annual Radiothon raised more than $482,000 for Loma Linda University Children's Hospital. With every $200 donation that a radio listener made, Stater Bros. Charities and its business partners donated a brand new bike to a 4th grade student.

"Stater Bros. Charities is pleased to be a part of an event that gives our kids the incentive to work harder and do well in school," stated Jack H. Brown, Chairman and CEO of Stater Bros. Markets. "Everyone remembers their first bike and with hard times around the corner these children deserve a happy memory, too."
