Bikes for Kids - Bryant Univeristy 2016

Each year The Foundation for Life donates over 500 bikes to under privileged children in surrounding communities throughout Connecticut and Rhode Island. In September, we teamed up with the Bryant University Bulldogs during their football game against Brown and gave away 25 bikes and helmets. During halftime, the children came out onto the field with no clue of their new gift. It was an amazing experience to see their eyes light up. The best part was when we received Thank You Notes from some of the children who received a bike that day.
