Bikes for Kids in 12th year of giving

Bikes for Kids, a program to provide new bikes for children in the care of Halton Children’s Aid, is now in its 12th year.

Founded by Burlington's Greg Pace of PACEperformance, the initiative started with Pace distributing two bikes in Year 1.

Since then, more than 500 bikes, athletic equipment and activity gear has been donated to the cause.

For many, 2016 has been a tough year for a number of reasons.

 “I am always buoyed by the energy and passion of kids, their joy of movement, their ability to just play,” says Pace.

“I have this sense, and a hope, that when a child wakes up Christmas morning to a shiny new bike, a light turns on, a joy that is hard to define, and really only gets defined over the year and upcoming years,” Pace adds.
