The Early Childhood Center at Rowan-Cabarrus Community College will hold its 19th annual “Bring a Bike Day Trike-a-Thon” to raise money for St. Jude Children Research Hospital. The center’s pre-schoolers will hop on their tricycles and other riding toys to help kids at St. Jude on April 25, beginning at 10:30 a.m.
The trike-a-thon is a special program developed for early childhood educators and childcare centers to teach children safe riding while supporting St. Jude’s efforts to eradicate childhood catastrophic diseases.
The program is a week-long activity involving young children, their parents and teachers. The trike-a-thon introduces key concepts of riding safety and concludes with participants bringing riding toys from home to show off the skills they have learned.
