Katie Blomquist, a teacher at Pepperhill Elementary in North Charleston, South Carolina.
After a quiet conversation with a student, she learned that many of her students didn’t have bicycles because their families could not afford to buy one.
Katie decided she was going to make sure every student at her school had a bicycle to call their own.
Katie launched an online fundraising campaign and raised more than $80,000 to buy 650 bicycles.
It only took three months.
People that donated were people of limited funds, people in other countries, Major Corporation’s even star comedian and talk show host Steve Harvey.
Blomquist surprised the kids Last Thursday morning by unveiling bikes in the school parking lot.
