Thank you Mr. Bike Man

On May 24th, 100 youngsters were rewarded at Sun Youth’s 34th Annual Bike Giveaway.

On May 24th, 100 youngsters who stood out through their courage or their good deeds in the community were rewarded at Sun Youth’s 34th Annual Bike Giveaway. Each year an anonymous donor know to the public as the Bike Man celebrates his birthday by rewarding deserving youths with a new bicycle, a safety helmet and a bike lock through Sun Youth. He thus wishes to honour these young people who all can serve as role models for their peers.

The organization’s Bike Committee was very touched by some of the stories received for the 2018 Edition of the giveaway. Whether they saved the lives of others, did small gestures for the environment, supported those in difficult times, coped with illness or helped their community through volunteer work and fundraising, these young people remind everyone the importance of this program’s existence. Sun Youth congratulates the 100 selected youngsters this year for their courage or their exceptional involvement in the community.

Since 1984 over 1,700 new bicycles have been distributed thanks to the exceptional generosity of Mr. Bike Man. Families of those who have been honoured through this initiative over the last three decades are invited to share their memories and pictures on Sun Youth’s social media pages such as Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. On behalf of youngsters Sun Youth would like to thank Mr. Bike Man for making the organization’s Annual Bike Giveaway possible and wishes him a happy 93rd birthday!

Congratulations to the 100 wonderful young people who earned a bike through their good deeds and courage!
