New bicycle distribution
New bicycles are distributed to young people whose actions have had a positive influence in their community or who have shown exceptional courage in difficult situations. Each year, Sun Youth gives out between 70 to 100 new bicycles, helmets and locks to these extraordinary young people. Since 1984, the distribution of new bicycles has been made possible thanks to an anonymous donor, "Mr. Bike Man".
This program is aimed at children aged between 3 and 17 years old coming from the Greater Montreal area. To submit the name of a child for this year, fill up this form or use the online application below. Please note that names of candidates can be submitted no later than March 31, 2017 and that no application will be considered after that date.
Used bicycle distribution
Throughout the year, Sun Youth receives used bicycles from individuals or from companies who organize bicycles drives to Sun Youth's benefit. The bikes are repaired and delivered in good condition by Sun Youth to families. Children get to choose their own bike and can enjoy family outings and other activities throughout the summer. About 500 bikes are collected each year and more than 90% can be repaired and distributed.
