It all started when Michelle Reuter was a freshman at Presentation High School. That year Michelle decided she wanted to donate a bike to the school's annual toy drive for the Sacred Heart Community Center in San Jose. Her parents agreed to match whatever amount of money she raised. Michelle gathered all her babysitting money and was able to purchase a bike, and her family matched it with another bike.
As we moved forward, each year we continued to purchase more bikes with the help of donations from our friends and family. Our goal is to always try to get one more bike than the previous year.
Each year, we get volunteers together for one day to help us build all the bikes and get them ready for delivery. We've had over 300 to build in one day....and we're able to do this with all the amazing friends who come to help us out.
