Annual Bike Giveaway June 26 at Harrison HS


What: 21st Annual Ivy Tech Bike Giveaway

When: Wednesday, June 26, 2024
Noon-2 p.m.

Where:  Harrison High School Gymnasium
211 Fielding Rd., Evansville, IN 47715

Background: Each year, donations provide bicycles for students in the EVSC’s Summer Programs, and selected other organizations including Isaiah Project 1:17 – as an incentive to attend the programs, and for good behavior.

Thanks to the generosity of donors across the community, more than 4,500 bicycles and 34 adaptive bikes have been awarded since the program’s inception 20 years ago. Several entities, in addition to the donors, come together to make this event happen.

School Board President Chris Kiefer is the primary individual soliciting and receiving donations for the event, Gerling Law provides helmets, EVSC Foundation provides assistance and funds, and Ivy Tech Foundation provides the bicycle locks, so a child has everything they need to not only ride their bike, but keep safe. EVSC’s Supportive Services provide the manpower to transport the bikes to and from the event.
