Lo­cal law of­fice hosts bike give­away for kids

The Avenue News - - EDITORIAL -

The Law Of­fices of Ran­dolph Rice, at 6914 Ho­labird Ave., Suite A, will hold a Christ­mas Bi­cy­cle Give­away for area chil­dren in need.

The of­fice is seek­ing to pro­vide new bi­cy­cles, while also pro­mote im­por­tant in­for­ma­tion about bi­cy­cle safety.

Bi­cy­cle ac­ci­dents kill an av­er­age of two peo­ple ev­ery day, ac­cord­ing to the Na­tional High­way Traf­fic Safety Ad­min­is­tra­tion. In ad­di­tion, tens of thou­sands

of bi­cy­clists are hurt in ac­ci­dents ev­ery year. Proper use of hel­mets, re­flec­tors and obey­ing the rules of the road can greatly re­duce the chance of in­jury, ac­cord­ing to bi­cy­cle safety ad­vo­cates.

Learn­ing to prac­tice proper bi­cy­cle safety pro­to­col at a young age helps im­prove

the odds that chil­dren can safely par­tic­i­pate in one of the purest joys dur­ing child­hood: rid­ing a bike.

“We are com­mit­ted to be­ing pos­i­tive com­mu­nity part­ners,” Rice noted, “and we wel­come the op­por­tu­nity to share the joy of the sea­son with the peo­ple we ser ve.”

The of­fice will give away bi­cy­cles for boys and girls. In­di­vid­u­als can re­ceive bi­cy­cles through a Face­book con­test.

Nom­i­na­tions for fam­i­lies in need may be sub­mit­ted on­line at www.ricelawmd. com/bi­cy­cle-give­away.

Bi­cy­cles will also be given

away via con­tests on Face­book at www.face­book. com/RiceLawMD.

Con­test par­tic­i­pants and nom­i­na­tors must be 18 years of age or older and must be Mary­land res­i­dents.
