Raising Money for Bikes

Village School sixth grader Sara Konkoly is asking for Pacific Palisades residents’ help in raising money for bicycles for kids/adults in Africa. She is a member of The Children for Community Service Team and has organized a fundraiser that will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday, May 22, in the Will Rogers State Beach parking lot.

“We are trying to provide specially-designed, locally-assembled bicycles to students and healthcare workers in rural Africa,” Konkoly said. “Each student in our group is trying to raise money to purchase one bike ($147).”

The bikes will be used by students who now walk miles to attend school and by families who would use them to gather food and water for villages.

“We would like to invite everyone to join us on the bike ride and/or to donate,” Konkoly said. Visit:fundraise.worldbicyclerelief.org/village-school.
