Davie, FL (PressExposure) December 14, 2011 -- The "Rick Case Bikes for Kids" program, celebrating its 30th anniversary this year, has provided thousands of needy children with a bicycle during the holidays since 1982, and is now collecting bikes for the 2011 holiday season from now through December 20, 2011. All bikes collected are distributed through area Boys & Girls Clubs as well as other charity organizations.
Many South Florida children are not fortunate enough to have a bike of their own. Fortunately, the Rick Case Bikes for Kids program, launched in 1982 by Rita and Rick Case of the Rick Case Automotive Group, has been making that dream a reality for needy children for 29 years.
