Kosair Charities® Pedal Power was created to continue the work of the late Ada Lee Kane. When Ada Lee volunteered at the 2010 Kosair Charities Annual Holiday Party she was unhappy with the small number of bikes we had to give to the children. Through donation Ada Lee collected over 80 bikes, for the 2011 Holiday Party, almost 10 times the amount we had previously given away. Her ultimate goal was to have every child attending the holiday party leave with a new bicycle and helmet.
With the help of V3 Jeep Shop’s annual bike drive for our Kosair Kids® Holiday Party, the amount of bikes donated to us each year continues to grow! In order to keep children safe on their new bikes, we supply each of them with a new helmet. Become a helmet champion by donating a brand new helmet to our Pedal Power program.
If you would like to hold a helmet drive and need more information or a collection bin, contact Kaitlin White at firstname.lastname@example.org or 502-637-7696 ext. 106.
If you would like to donate a bike or helmet(s) they can be dropped off at 982 Eastern Parkway Louisville, KY 40217.
