Bike Drive at Cahokia Mounds benefits Two Non-Profits
Cahokia Mounds is proud to partner with BWorks for a Bicycle Drive October 7. Bicycle Works is one of the great programs offered by BWorks, St. Louis, a non-profit whose focus it is to empower St. Louis kids. The Earn-A-Bike Program is a great resource where children are taught the basics about bicycle safety and maintenance as a means to build community awareness and personal responsibility. This is a free program where kids attend a series of hands-on courses held at various locations. Graduating youths earn their own bike, helmet, light, and lock. Bicycle Works is always in need of new or used bikes and bike-related accessories. Bikes and accessories can be in any condition, as many times non-working bikes are used for parts and demonstrations. A donor has come forward to facilitate the success of this Bike Drive. If 100 bikes are donated to BWorks during the Bike Drive, a donation will be made to further the work of the Cahokia Mounds Museum Society and their efforts at the site. You can drop your bike or accessories off at Cahokia Mounds on October 7, from 9 am through noon in the parking lot. This is a great way to help kids in our community, recycle unwanted bikes and accessories, and support the efforts of Cahokia Mounds! For any questions, call Lori at 618-344-7316 or contact BWorks at info@Bworks.org.
