During SPRI’s 42nd Annual Conference & Business Meeting Jan. 12-14 in Clearwater, Fla., members took time to give back to the community by assembling and donating 25 bicycles to local second-grade students.

Organized through Wish for Wheels,® an organization with a mission to give every child in need a bicycle and helmet, and sponsored by Johns Manville Roofing Systems, Denver, the bike-building activities included two competitions: one for speed and another for teams where the bike builders were blindfolded and had to follow directions from non-blindfolded team members.

After the bikes passed safety inspections, they were donated to students at a local Boys & Girls Club of America.
