Charlotte South Park Rotary collects dusty, not rusty bikes for Trips for Kids
Soon after his first Trips for Kids ride, Rotarian Michael Camp invited Paula Fricke, co-founder of Trip for Kids Charlotte to speak to the SouthPark Rotary Club about the organization. This program immediately generated interest from fellow rotary members. They asked Camp to spearhead a bike donation drive to support the organization. It's been ongoing ever since.
"Many organizations come to us and ask for money, but Paula just wanted bikes," Camp said.
SouthPark Rotary has collected and donated almost 600 bikes, raising $18,000 for Trips for Kids Charlotte.
