Young heroes wanted to receive brand new bicycles from Sun Youth Organization
For the 35th consecutive year, Sun Youth Organization announces the return of its Annual New Bike Giveaway program. These bicycles will be handed out to youths whose actions have had a positive impact on their community or have shown extraordinary courage when facing exceptional circumstances. Sadly Mr. Bike Man, the anonymous donor behind this distribution passed away this January. Following his death it was revealed that he was none other than successful businessman and great philanthropist Avrum (Avi) Morrow. In his memory Sun Youth is inviting the public to tell these exceptional young people’s story for the distribution that will now be named after him.
Here is how to proceed! Do you know of a young person in the Greater Montreal area, aged between 3 and 17 years, who did something that deserves to be highlighted and rewarded with a new bike, a safety helmet and a bike lock? Then, send us, in writing, the following information: the name of this young person, the age, a little about family background, and tell us what that young person did that you feel is noteworthy. Please do not forget your name and telephone number so that we can contact you for further information.
Please send all submissions:

Throughout the following weeks, our bicycle committee will make a selection from the names submitted. Our young heroes will be honored in a ceremony taking place at Sun Youth’s headquarters in late May. This ceremony will also mark the birthday of Avi Morrow who would have turned 94 this year. For 34 years under the pseudonym Mr. Bike Man, he anonymously allowed Sun Youth to distribute over 1,500 new bicycles to deserving young people.
