Burncoat Prep Bicycle Safety and Helmets Distribution
Burncoat Street Preparatory School received a donation of 75 bicycle helmets from the organization Rickey Bates BMX Banned Together, Inc.
This foundation was created in honor of Rickey Bates who died tragically in a car accident on his way home from a bicycle trade show. Rickey was a professional BMX rider and creator of BMX products and videos. The foundation was created to provide underprivileged youth with equipment and training and to promote bicycle safety.
This donation was combined with their Grade 4 Bicycle Safety Program, where the helmets were distributed to students.
