On April 28, 2017, Dillon DiLivers Love and Chino Montessori School hosted the second annual Trike-A- Thon. Weeks before the event, pledge sheets were sent home with the children where family and friends were encouraged to sponsor their students and help him/her win prizes for this great cause! Students had a surprise visit from Firefighters from fire station 67 and learned bike and road safety rules to help keep them safe all year! Students proudly showed their prized bikes and trikes as they excitedly demonstrated their skills! With two bike raffles, photo booth picture souveniers, and prizes for our participants, it proved to be a special, memorable day for children and parents alike!
In this single event alone, a small school community of less than 150 children raised almost $4,000 for our 2017 "Back to School Bag Pack Drive." Back to school can be an exciting time for children and their parents but it can also be expensive and overwhelming. It is no secret that families with a chronically ill family member can be consumed by the demands of the cost of school materials, taking care of their loved one, as well as other members of their family. With that in mind, the funds raised during the Trike-A-Thon event will be used to purchase bag packs filled with age appropriate school items for children waiting on the transplant waiting list and care kits for the parents who often put their own needs aside caring for their children. In this way, we can bring joy and make a difference in the lives of others and show them that there is love and hope all around them.
THANK YOU for your support!
What an amazing honor it is to serve others along with you.
