It was 4 years ago that we first talked to John White from Bicycles for Children. The organization was only a few months old but you could tell they were already picking up momentum. We decided to check back with them to see how things were going. The Bicycles for Children not-for-profit, Corona based organization was founded in July 2012 with the goal of donating 155 bicycles to impoverished children in the Corona/Norco Unified School District. Each elementary school in the district was asked to select five needy, but deserving children from their school. Through fundraising, being involved with community events, and private and business donations, they were able to exceed their goal, and purchased, assembled, and donated 196 bicycles and helmets. Listen as John brings us up to date and a look at where they might be headed.
