We are currently looking for youngsters who deserve a new bicycle.
The 31st annual new bike giveaway is coming soon! These bicycles will be given to youths whose actions have had a positive impact on their community or who have shown extraordinary courage when facing exceptional circumstances. If you know of a young person who has illustrated himself in that way, we want to know.
Here is how to participate. Do you know of a young person in the Greater Montreal area, aged 2 to 17 years, who did something that deserves to be highlighted and rewarded with a new bike, a safety helmet and a bike lock? Send us, in writing, the following information: the name of this young person, the age, a little about her or his family background, and tell us what this young person did that you feel is noteworthy. Please do not forget your name and telephone number so that we can contact you for further information.
Requests must be made in writing, preferably using the form for this purpose and be directed:
by mail to the attention of Sun Youth – Selection Committee for the Bicycle Giveaway
by fax at 514-842-5241 or,
by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Names of candidates can be submitted no later than March 31, 2015.
Throughout the following weeks, our bicycle committee will select approximately 60 deserving candidates from the names submitted. Our young heroes will be honored in a ceremony taking place at Sun Youth’s headquarters in late May. This ceremony will also celebrate the 90th birthday of the Mr. Bike Man, the anonymous donor who has been supporting this program since its beginning. Over the last 30 years, this donor has allowed Sun Youth to distribute nearlyr 1,300 new bicycles to deserving young people.
