An Encouraging Word

Price Hill Kids Will Get More Than a Bike

Posted on

Price Hill second-grade students will receive more than a bicycle later this month.

According to American social reformer and women’s rights activist Susan B. Anthony: “She who succeeds in gaining the mastery of the bicycle will gain the mastery of life.”

The statement is true for boys, as well.

In a short while, Lord’s Gym Ministries, with a generous donation from Wish for Wheels, will be distributing 100 black and yellow Huffy bikes and 100 blue helmets. Wish for Wheels is a nonprofit that gives brand new bicycles and helmets to kids in low income communities.

Wish for Wheels was brought to the Cincinnati by Arington Foundation, a nonprofit organization and a private foundation, with the mission to spread the love and gospel of Jesus Christ by putting Christian values into action. The Foundation selected Lord's Gym to distribute the bikes.

These bikes will provide hours of fun, exercise and adventure.

(The bikes will also) impart life lessons as our kids have will use their bike rides as a real life metaphor in their own life,” Executive Director Scott Bowers said. “If you expect to get where your destination, sometimes you just have to keep going even when you don’t feel like it.”

Many volunteers were gathered together through Arlington Foundation last weekend to build the 100 bikes. These bikes will be distributed later this month to Price Hill second-grade students at the Lord’s Gym Family Activity Center.

The special gift will bring great joy and help fulfill Lord’s Gym and Wish for Wheels’ goals to broaden these children’s scope for personal growth and a health lifestyle. The bikes will also serve as a reminder that God loves them and provides.
