Cresco, Iowa – As Ragbrai is rolling through Iowa, local kids could have the chance to be selected to get a new bike, helmet, and lock.
This giveaway is organized by Variety, which is based out of Des Moines, but Fareway and Sammons Financial also assisted with it.
The idea with this program is to give bikes, helmets, and locks to kids who might not have these things. Variety was in touch with Big Brothers Big Sisters in Charles to determine which children should be selected as recipients. For other communities, they were in contact with schools to determine who should receive this package.
This is Variety’s second time giving away bikes on Ragbrai. This year they have given away bikes in Clear Lake, Charles City, Waukon, and Cresco.
