Bikes for kids

Volunteers needed to prepare bikes for Dec. 10 giveaway.

[Star Tribune, November 12, 2011] Free Bikes 4 Kidz, a nonprofit started by cycling enthusiasts who struck a partnership with Allina Hospitals & Clinics and others, is headed toward a record 5,000 bikes that will be donated, restored and provided to needy families this holiday season -- up from 1,500 last year.

"Many of our employees are avid cyclists, and we want to help make it possible for every child to participate in this healthy, fun and environmentally friendly activity," said Allina CEO Ken Paulus, whose headquarters is adjacent to the bike-crazy Midtown Greenway in south Minneapolis.
