From Cigar City & Oskar Blues:

CAN’d Aid Foundation and Cigar City Brewing Invite Community to Build Bikes for Local First Graders

101 Bikes to be Donated to Tampa Blvd Elementary

WHAT: Cigar City Brewing and the CAN’d Aid Foundation have teamed up to build and donate bikes to 101 underprivileged children in Tampa, FL. After volunteers convene to build the bikes, the entire first grade class at Tampa Blvd Elementary, a Title I school, will receive a new bike and helmet. Jeff Lenoksy, a world-class professional freeride and trials mountainbike rider, will also treat students to a wheelie-filled stunt demo and bike safety training.

Community volunteers are needed to help build the bikes at Cigar City Brewing - where food, beer and all tools necessary to build the bikes will be provided. Volunteers are invited to join Cigar City Brewing representatives and CAN’d Aid at Tampa Boulevard Elementary to help distribute bikes, fit helmets and adjust seats for each of the students.
