Charlie's New Bike

We ran out of bigger bikes at our Bikes & Badges event when Columbus Division of Police Commander Jeff Lokai was trying to help Charlie pick one out. Rather than give him one that wasn't the right size for him, we got his mother's information and arranged to meet them later.

Charlie has a twin brother, Cameron, so our friends at Walmart Dublin - Britton Pkwy helped us pick out bikes that would work out for both of them. (Cameron's bike went off to another home.) Then we met up with the family and Commander Lokai, Starfish Board Member and Deputy Chief Tim Becker, and Lieutenant Chris Lieb, to give the boys their new wheels. (They got helmets when they were at Glenwood Community Center.)

As you can see, they loved the bikes. It was a lot of fun to see their smiles. Thanks to our sponsor Byers Auto Group for making Bikes & Badges possible and to Commander Lokai, Charlie, Charlie's mom, Dashawna, and Walmart for extending the joy a little bit more.
