United Way of Southwestern Pennsylvania; 150 volunteers across three counties; 50 volunteers in Butler County from MSA Safety, Hefren-Tillotson, XTO Energy, Butler County Community College.
Teams of volunteers from four different companies will build 100 bikes. Once completed, the bikes will be inspected and distributed to local kids. Each child will also receive a bike helmet, lock and bike maps courtesy of BikePGH.
United Way’s Build-A-Bike teaches children the importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle and provides active alternatives for the summer. For many kids, this event marks the first time they have ever owned, or even ridden, a bike – giving them a chance to explore, foster curiosity and get back to a #SummerOfPlay.
