Young he­roes wanted to re­ceive brand new bi­cy­cles!

Montreal Times - - News -

For the 34th con­sec­u­tive year, Sun Youth Or­ga­ni­za­tion is happy to an­nounce the re­turn of its An­nual New Bike Give­away pro­gram.These bi­cy­cles will be handed out to youths whose ac­tions have had a pos­i­tive im­pact on their com­mu­nity or who have shown ex­tra­or­di­nary courage when fac­ing ex­cep­tional cir­cum­stances. Sun Youth is invit­ing the pub­lic to tell these young peo­ple’s story.

Here is how to pro­ceed: do you know of a young per­son in the Greater Mon­treal area, aged be­tween 3 and 17 years, who did some­thing that de­serves to be high­lighted and re­warded with a new bike, a safety hel­met and a bike lock? Then send Sun Youth the fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion in writ­ing: the name of this young per­son, the age, a lit­tle about fam­ily back­ground, and in­di­cate what that young per­son did that you feel is note­wor­thy. Please do not for­get your name and tele­phone num­ber so that the se­lec­tion com­mit­tee can con­tact you for fur­ther in­for­ma­tion.

You can also visit the or­ga­ni­za­tion's web­site at http://sun­y­ n/ser­vices/emer­gency/bi­cy­cle-dis­tri­bu­tion/ to sub­mit names of de­serv­ing can­di­dates by March 31st. Sun Youth's bi­cy­cle com­mit­tee will se­lect ap­prox­i­mately 90 de­serv­ing can­di­dates from the names sub­mit­ted. The young he­roes will be hon­oured in a cer­e­mony tak­ing place at Sun Youth’s head­quar­ters in late May. This cer­e­mony will also cel­e­brate the 93rd birth­day of the Bike Man, the anony­mous donor who has been sup­port­ing this pro­gram since the be­gin­ning. Over the last 34 years, this donor has al­lowed Sun Youth to dis­trib­ute ap­prox­i­mately 1,400 new bi­cy­cles to de­serv­ing young peo­ple.
