Team Bums ran an essay contest for youth ages 9-13 from April 1 - August 22, 2011. Club funds, combined with an anonymous donor, allowed us to award two essay writing youths with brand new bikes. Additionally, Team Bums has used this experience to launch a new campaign called Pedal It Forward. See that page for some details on this year's winners and the campaign, where people are given bikes on the condition that they donate their old bike to someone else in need, and so on. While there, please 'like' the page to spread awareness on Facebook, thanks!
Full details about the contest (now closed) are in the flyer below:
