6th Annual Spooks, Spokes, Sneakers & Cycles A BIG Success
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northeast Iowa (BBBSNEIA) thanks the community for making the 6th Annual Spooks, Spokes, Sneakers & Cycles a BIG success. The organization raised over $7,500, which will help the agency match even more youth this year in one-to-one mentoring relationships. BBBSNEIA will serve over 530 youth this year. Without the support of many individuals, volunteers, local companies and sponsors this would not be possible.
Over 150 guests attended the event, held at Gateway Park in Cedar Falls, to show their support for BBBSNEIA. The activities held throughout the day included a 17-mile bike ride, 9-mile bike ride, a 3.5 mile powder fun run and walk, and a motorcycle poker run.
