The $6,000 goal was met and 150 bikes (with helmets and training wheels) will be handed out on Monday, December 14th starting at noon at the Martin Luther King Center in Rock Island.

Each year a coalition of caring community leaders come together for a cause as worthy as they come:  handing out bikes to the youngest, and the neediest, among us.  Teaming up, each year, has been the Rock Island County Regional Office of Education, Bike N'Hike and Queen's Parlour.  This initiative, called "Bikes for Brains," seeks to give out bikes to qualified QC-area children deemed eligible by Head Start, the Early Childhood Centers and The Project, an AIDS charity.  The average cost of a bike with training wheels is about $75.00. The Pilot Club of Moline has pledged to donate helmets for all of the new young bikers and Walmart donated $1000 toward this year's effort.

Available for interviews that day will be organizer, Sandy Seely, children, parents and other volunteers.  Seely loves to help with this program.  "This initiative provides bicycles, helmets, and books to young children who would not be provided the opportunity to own and ride a bicycle, if it were not for the generous donations provided for by our community. Children who are recipients of this initiative will use their gross motor skills every time they ride their bike which, in turn, promotes brain development."
