Tri Valley Group

Thank you! 2013 was a busy, successful year thanks to you! We are grateful for the support we’ve received from individuals like you as well as our sponsors: The Alameda County Fairgrounds, First Presbyterian Church of Livermore, The Safeway Foundation, AT&T Pioneers, and Therma. Thanks to the fairgrounds we were in larger building and our 300 volunteers were able to build all 500 bikes in just over 3 hours!  Thirteen charities gave the bikes to young people to help many dreams come true last Christmas. Along with our Big Bike Build we held two Free Bike Repair Clinics, one in Hayward and one in Livermore.  Volunteers fixed about 100 bikes at each clinic AND we distributed about 60 helmets at each clinic to kids who didn’t own one ensuring that each child would be safer as they rode their newly repaired bikes.

It’s almost summer of 2014 and we’re busy planning more Free Bike Repair Clinics, fundraising events and our 3rd Annual Big Bike Build (BBB) at the Alameda County Fairgrounds. Put December 6th on your calendar NOW and save the date to attend a TWFK BBB in San Jose or Pleasanton. Let’s work together to make 2014 (TWFK’s 10th anniversary year!) the best year yet!

2014 Goals

1) The only complaint we had from our volunteers was that there weren’t enough bikes to build! So, we’re going BIGGER this year and will build 750 bikes.  That means we are increasing our fundraising goal to $75,000 to provide bikes, helmets, and locks for 750 children through donations and grants.

2) Provide 3 FREE Bike Repair Clinics in low income neighborhoods. (raise $1000 per clinic to cover cost of parts) All bike repair clinics will be open from 10am – 2pm

Upcoming Events

June 28th  In Hayward at the Eden Family Center on the corner of  Tennyson and Ruus Rd. (Download Flyer)
