Kailyn’s Memorial Fund The Framingham Police have made a donation to Bug’s Bikes in Kailyn’s memory, so that other kids can enjoy time on their bikes with family and friends. We have decided to go one step further and have set up Kailyn’s Fund. The funds donated in Kailyn’s name will go to an adaptive bike for a child with special needs who has a parent who is a first responder. We can not think of a better way to honor Kailyn’s memory and thank her parents for their community service as police officers. Visit Kailyn’s Memorial Fund page to learn more about Kailyn and how to donate to her fun. Pedal Car Raffle!
A special Thank You to Mr. Joey Kinch and the guys from his Collision Technology Program at the Medford Vocational High school for donating their Award Winning pedal car to Bug’s Bikes. Bug is a little big for this pedal car, so with the thumbs up from the guys Bug has decided to raffle this beauty off to one lucky winner! We hate to let it go but hope to raise some much needed funds for more adaptive bikes.
Lemonade to Earn and Learn We have a project going with the Kennedy Day School students at Franciscan’s Hospital for Children. They are building their own lemonade stand! They are using this project to work toward their vocational goals. Some will be learning about money, some are building or doing graphics, others are sewing, these students are hard at work preparing for opening day. They will be selling lemonade to raise funds for a bike for a student in need of a bike in their school. Their teacher who has come up with this amazing idea has agreed to blog about their experience for us. I can not wait for the updates on their progress!
Somerville Boy Helps Special Needs Peers Ride Bikes
A five-year-old Somerville resident who’s legally blind started a lemonade stand to help other kids with disabilities. He raised $1,500 before squeezing the first lemon, and his effort has transformed into full-fledged non-profit. http://somerville.patch.com/groups/goodnews/p/somerville-boy-helps-special-needs-peers-ride-bikes
