GOLDEN VALLY, Minn. - In 2008, Free Bikes 4 Kidz gave away 300 bikes. Last year, there were 5,000 bikes given to kids.
This year, organizers hope to do even more.
Terry Esau, creator of Free Bikes 4 Kidz, joined KARE 11 news at 4 to talk about this year's needs and where folks can volunteer.
Esau says they rely on the public to donate their used bikes to us, then they organize several thousand volunteers to shine and refurbish those bikes, then give them away to kids in need.
Their big bike donation drive is Saturday, Oct. 12.
