CLEARWATER, Fla. – Eckerd Kids will distribute 400 new bicycles and helmets to children in foster care throughout the Tampa Bay area this weekend.
Eckerd Kids partnered with onbikes, a Tampa-based non-profit organization that raises money toward the purchase of bicycles and helmets for foster children through their annual Winter Wonder Ride. The mission of onbikes is to restore the self-confidence, health and overall well-being of at-risk children in the community by providing these children with bicycles. On December 10 more than 1,600 bike riders participated in the 6th annual Winter Wonder Ride to assist in raising this money toward the purchase of the bicycles and helmets.
On Saturday, December 17, Eckerd Kids will be distributing the donated bicycles to foster families at their three different Tampa Bay area locations.
