Something extraordinary happened today. TWFK’s first expansion group, Livermore TWFK, held their first Big Bike Build! It was fun, energizing, creative (some great improvements), and most of all, successful ~ 500 bikes out today to local Livermore area kids!
It took a lot of work and just as much faith that it could happen. And it did! What did Nancy and I (Sue) love most today? That a group of people came together and said, lets do something important. Let’s make a difference.
And they did!! WOW!!!
I was touched by this email that Patt sent out when she arrived home after a crazy, busy, tiring day!
After unloading my car (and before a glass of wine); I stopped to say a prayer thanking the Lord for allowing me to be involved with such an unselfish, generous and energetic group of individuals. Your openheartedness will be reflected in the eyes and smiles of 498 children.
The 2nd part of my prayer was to ask that all of you and your families enjoy good health and a Christmas that reflects your big hearts.
MMA fighters talk about their first bikes at the 2012 Turning Wheels for Kids golf tournament. Features Daniel Cormier, Josh Thomson, Cung Le, Luke Rockhold, Phil Baroni, Scott Smith, and Tito Ortiz.
Wow, what a day. 95 bikes repaired and about 10 used bikes given out to kids without. One little boy, after his bike was repaired, zooooooomed past me and he said to no one, “Wow, my bikes like BRAND NEW!”
Thanks to all who showed up today. As George, DPR barbequer extraordinaire noted, there is work to be done by those that want to show up! And hey all, what a crew showed up. Robert, one of the first young men that showed up to have his bike fixed came up, shook my hand and said, “I want to thank you for the difference you are making for each kid that shows up here today. It really matters” shoot! brought a tear to my eye. As the saying goes, “What you do matters”. Thanks team!
