Our goal is to collect and distribute over 400 new bikes to children in need this Christmas.

Now in its 17th year, Bikes for Tikes collects new bike donations through the Christmas season, assembles them with an army of volunteers and distributes them through Toys for Tots. Since it began, the organization has distributed over 3,000 new bikes.

“A new bike is a special gift to any kid,” says Bill Marsh Jr. “But so many families just can’t afford that luxury. Thousands of kids have had an amazing Christmas as a result of
this bike drive.”

The bikes are distributed through Northwest Michigan Toys for Tots and Toys for Tots of Otsego County.

The bike campaign will continue through December 14th . New bikes can be dropped off at all Bill Marsh dealerships in Traverse City, Kalkaska and Gaylord, plus at the studios of WKHQ and Bob FM in Acme.
