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 can give them to kids less fortunate in our community. With your support we can achieve our goal of buying bikes, assembling and delivering them to be distributed to those who need them. Andrew is still accepting donations for Bikes for Kids during the entire month of October. This year more than ever it’s important to get kids outside, active and to help those in need. The charity provides brand new bikes to Christmas Mothers of the Capitol Region who give them to families in need. Our goal is to buy 500 new bikes and helmets.

If you'd like to make a donation to help the Richmond Area Bicycling Association (RABA) reach their goal, CLICK HERE and make your secure donation thru PayPal. Any amount you can give helps. Large bikes for teenagers cost about $100, mid-size bikes $75 and small bikes $50. Remember, your donations are tax deductible.

Skills? No bike mechanic skills are required, and tools will be provided.

Positive, team-oriented, can-do and attention-to-detail spirits are greatly desired!
