Wheels 4 Life Partners with Journey School to Send Bikes For Christmas
Journey School is a Waldorf-inspired charter elementary school located in Aliso Viejo. Situated adjacent to Aliso/Woods Canyon Regional Park, students often take to their bikes to explore some of the 5,000 acres of wilderness right next door.
On Friday, December 9th their 11:00 a.m. bicycle field trip will take on a whole new spin. The children will help former trials riding champion and world renowned extreme mountain biker Hans Rey, launch his new charity, Wheels 4 Life. The goal of this charity is to provide bicycles to people in third world countries so that they can elevate their standard of living. In this case, these Orange County children will hold an on-campus bake sale to raise enough money to send bikes to children in Mexico.
“For us a bike is like a fun toy, but for some kids it might mean they get to go to school,” says one Journey fourth grader who is looking forward to Hans coming to campus.
