Thank to everyone who celebrated our community youth by joining the live stream of the Virtual 3rd Annual Bike Giveaway in conjunction with Giant Bicycles.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the event was online, with the bicycles' final
delivery to participating scholars being transported by Amazon Delivery DXS Logistics, LLC
vans, just in time for the holidays. The objective is to have all bikes and gifts delivered to selected students homes between: Wednesday December 16 - Monday December 21.

This third edition of the giveaway will look a lot different than previous years, where hundreds would gather on the day of the giveaway to get their bikes.
“We’re thrilled to continue our support of the Bahati Foundation’s annual bike giveaway,” says Alex Wassmann of Giant Bicycles. “In the face of challenging circumstances, the Foundation adapted to ensure the continuation of this incredible community event.
