Fifty Carleston Elementary first and second grade students have a new ride thanks to a generous donation of bikes and youth helmets from Academy Sports + Outdoors.
Pearland Parkway Academy store team members presented a bike to each of the students on Dec. 8.
Academy’s annual bike donation provides local schools with an opportunity to reward children for achievements in academic performance, perfect attendance or good behavior.
For the past 14 years, Academy has donated thousands of bikes and helmets to local schools during the holidays as part of its annual holiday bike donation program. This season, Academy will donate bikes and helmets to more than 140 schools throughout the South, Southeast, and Midwest U.S.
