Earn a Bike Program

July 7, 2010

Making a Difference

I attended a terrific event today.

The “Tim Horton’s Earn A Bike” program is celebrating its 10th anniversary.  This is a partnership between the Guelph Police Service and Tim Hortons.  Tim Hortons provides the bikes for 30 youth.  Members of our Police Service coordinate the program.  The youth volunteer 30 hours to  community service cleaning up our parks.  Numerous organizations and businesses sponsor the program including five of our local bicycle stores who volunteer to assemble the 30 bikes. 

It was an honour to be present to recognize the youth who had participated successfully in this program.
