We Support: The Children’s Institute


We Support: The Children’s Institute Chaps for Charity


The Children’s Institute Chaps for Charity is holding its 9th annual fundraising event on September 14, 2014 “Bikers helping Bikers” Poker Run to benefit children with special needs.

Registration: 10:00AM (coffee & donuts)
Kickstands up: 12:00PM
Starting Place: Pizza Roma Restaurant – 8350 Perry Hwy. in McCandless Twp.
Cost: $20 Rider/ $15 Passenger
You can also register at Bakers Backstreet in Evans City at Noon. Immediately following the ride they will return to Pizza Roma for a Cookout, Door Prizes, Music by DJ Diva, & Raffles.

This year’s funds will support the Amazing Bike Camp. For every $350.00 raised, they can sponsor a child with special needs to attend the five-day camp to have the chance to learn how to ride a bicycle. 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. Support isn’t all that they gain-every camper will receive his or her own bicycle and helmet!

The Children’s Institute is an independent, non-profit organization that provides millions of dollars of uncompensated care & services. Their goal is to enable children and young adults with special needs to realize their fullest potential. They provide them with every opportunity to achieve their own personal miracle.
