Join SPE Young Professionals for the annual Bicycle Build with CycleHouston.
Each year this organization partners with elementary schools to encourage students in kindergarten through third grade to improve reading skills, behavior and attendance.
Those students who commit to a special monitoring program and fulfill all necessary requirements are rewarded with a bike!
SPE Young Professionals will be assisting with assembling some of 150,000 bikes to be delivered to these students the week before Christmas.
There is a donation required of $65 USD per participant. This almost covers the cost of one bicycle.
