2016 Summary

January 14, 2017 at 1:20 PM | Posted in Uncategorized | Leave a comment

This year we took nine trips with 91 riders, making our six year totals, 67 trips with 557 riders. Clients this year were old friends HICO, LOOP BnG, UMC NC TECH, St. Barnabas Center and the Boys and Girls Club, but we also added the Camp Curtin Academy for what amounted to a field trip out of school.

Many of our 2016 summer program trips were cancelled this year because of oppressive heat and humidity. We are looking for new clients in 2017 to serve during the spring and fall.

Our parent organization was busy providing new logos to all chapters and streamlining the year end reporting processes.

We’d like to thank the family and friends of Kevin Breckenmaker. This past July, the family designated TFK of Harrisburg for memorial contributions resulting in donations exceeding $1,300.

This past fall, volunteers from Quality Bicycle Products tuned all the bicycles in the garage. We recently acquired six new Raleigh bicycles from the Pedal Pusher at a substantial discount. The bikes were assembled by QBP volunteers in Lancaster.

We are able to operate this chapter through the generosity of these donors and volunteers.

2015 was our best year, ever

We have surpassed our last year results, but we are still looking for rides in the coming months. If you know of an organization serving city youth who might be interested in a bike ride, please let me know.

2015 Shaping up very well

We had a rough year in 2013, many factors conspired to make it so. Three rides were conducted for 23 kids. We are dedicated to improving our performance in 2014, and we are looking for new clients. Over the winter with the help of TFK National, Quality Bicycle Products and the Pedal Pusher, we will be upgrading our bike inventory.
