Burke CARES Bicycle Program

"United, there is little we cannot do." --President John Kennedy


The "Earn-A-Bike" program has ended, at least for now.  Thanks to those who provided this service.  For details about the program, see the information below: 

What Was the "Earn-a-Bike" Program? 

It was a way for Burke Centre and Burke area youngsters who need bikes to learn bicycle repair, and to earn bicycles for themselves by repairing them. 

How Did the "Earn-a-Bike" Program Work?

A youngster put in twenty hours at "Earn-a-Bike" sessions, 
and at the end of that time, got a bike. 

Parents could help their youngsters earn bikes.They could work at "Earn-a-Bike" sessions with their youngsters. And the time parents put in countedtoward their youngster's twenty hours. 

Bikes were donated by friends in the area, and community members donated their tools, equipment, and time to teach the sessions. 

Where Were the "Earn-a-Bike" Sessions Held?

"Earn-a-Bike" sessions were usually held on Saturdays 
at a local church or at a Burke Centre community center.
