Bikes for a Cause

Randy Fox is on a Thanksgiving mission.

He’s encouraging everyone in Thunder Bay to let the spirit of giving push them to take part in Bikes for Humanity’s 4th annual bicycle donation days here in the city.

Those interested in helping out can drop off their bicycles, used or new, at 507 E. Victoria Ave beginning on Thursday and Friday, from 7 to 9 in the evening, until Saturday, from 10 in the morning to 4 in the afternoon. Bikes for Humanity’s local chapter will be on hand to receive and arrange the bikes, which will then be sent to Sierra Leone next month.

According to Randy Fox, a bicycle can mean the difference between life and death for someone in a third world country in Africa such as Namibia. He points out that a simple thing such as a bicycle can help extend the reach of a health care worker, who normally only walks around the community.

With a bicycle, not only do you go farther, you get there twice as fast, he said. A simple bike can mean a lot to those in Africa, so pay it forward and check out the event!
