Every year the Richmond Area Bicycling Association, through its RABA Foundation (a 501-c3 organization), raises money to purchase bicycles to donate to area Christmas Mothers so they in turn can give them to kids less fortunate in our community. The program provided 550 bikes in 2016 and 600 bikes in 2017!

Do you remember how much fun it was to find a brand new bike next to the Christmas tree? Help us make that dream come true for some kids in need.

Skills? No bike mechanic skills are required, but if you have tools like multi-sized Allen wrenches, flat and Phillips head screw drivers, bike stand, work gloves, etc. please bring them so you can be partnered with others who don’t have any of these things. Positive, team-oriented, can-do and attention-to-detail spirits are greatly desired!  

Food, drinks: There will hot coffee and a few snacks in the morning; lunch will be pizza and bottled water/sodas. Please bring $5, cash or check made payable to the RABA Foundation, to cover the cost of lunch.

Wear: Layered, warm clothing and comfortable/supportive shoes. While we are inside a large storage warehouse, there is NO heat and we are standing on concrete floors. Be prepared for possible cold temperatures if outside weather is cold.

For more information please contact Andrew Mann at [email protected].

If you'd like to make a donation to help the Richmond Area Bicycling Association (RABA) reach the goal of 800 bikes click here: http://www.raba.org/bikesforkids.html and make your secure donation thru PayPal.
