The 33rd annual new bike giveaway is back! 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 in the Greater Montreal area, aged between 3 and 17 years, who has illustrated himself in that way, we want to know!
Here is how to participate.
Send us in writing the following information: the name and age of the young person, a little family background, and what that young person did that merits a new bike, a safety helmet and a bike lock. Please do not forget your name and telephone number so that we can contact you for further information.
Please send all submissions:
- by mail at Sun Youth - Selection Committee for the Bicycle Giveaway 4251, St. Urbain, Montreal, QC, H2W 1V6;
- by fax at 514-842-5241;
- by email at firstname.lastname@example.org;
- or directly on our website.
Names of candidates can be submitted no later than March 31, 2017.
Throughout the following weeks, our bicycle committee will select approximately 90 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 92st birthday of the Bike Man, the anonymous donor who has been supporting this program since the beginning. Over the last 33 years, this donor has allowed Sun Youth to distribute more than 1,300 new bicycles to deserving young people.
