We are currently looking for exceptional young people
Montreal, March 6, 2014. For the 30th consecutive year, Sun Youth Organization is proud to announce the return of its annual new bike giveaway. These bicycles will be handed out to youths whose actions have had a positive impact on their community or to young people who have shown extraordinary courage when facing exceptional circumstances. Sun Youth is inviting the public to tell these young people’s stories.
Do you know of a young person in the Greater Montreal area who deserves to be rewarded with a new bike, a safety helmet and a bike lock? Here’s how to proceed. Send us, in writing, the following information: the name and age of the young person, a little family background, and tell us what that young person did that merits a new bike. We also need your name and telephone number so that we may contact you for further information.
Please send all submissions to: Sun Youth – Selection Committee for the Bicycle Giveaway, 4251, St. Urbain, Montreal, QC., H2W 1V6, or by fax: (514) 842-5241 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. The guidelines to use for an application can also be found in this document. Names of candidates must be submitted by March 31, 2014 and no candidacy will be considered passed that date.
Throughout the following weeks, our bicycle committee will select approximately 50 deserving candidates from the names submitted and they will be honored in a ceremony held at Sun Youth’s headquarters at the beginning of June in celebration of the birthday of the anonymous donor responsible for this distribution. Over the last 29 years, this donor has allowed Sun Youth to distribute over 1200 new bicycles to deserving young people.
We invite the media to communicate this information to the public so they can submit the candidacy of these exceptional youths before the March 31st deadline. For further information, we urge you to contact Mr. Tommy Kulczyk or Mr. Eric Kingsley at (514) 842-6822.
