There’s something amazing about to happen on Sunday September 13, 2015. Chaps for Charity will be holding it’s 9th annual fundraising event, “Bikers helping Bikers”, at Pizza Roma Restaurant located at 8350 Perry Hwy, McCandless, to benefit children with special needs.
This years funds will support the amazing Bike Camp. For many kids, learning to ride a bike is a natural childhood milestone. For children with special needs, however, mastering a two-wheeled bicycle without training wheels can be a significant challenge. During the 5 day camp, children use adaptive bicycles to gain understanding and confidence in riding. Support isn’t all that they gain – every camper will receive his or her own bicycle and helmet!
