We would like to wish all the fathers out there, who are committed to their families and the people in their lives, a very Happy Father’s Day. The way you care for those around you, through words of encouragement, acts of service, or getting the dinner on means so much. Your great example is building up those you care for. We know first hand, at REAL MEN Hamilton, the time and effort so many fathers put into caring for their families and community. The hours of collecting bikes, repairing them, and then gifting them to others is so much appreciated. You are making a difference! So however you celebrate this weekend, enjoy the day and take a moment to reflect on how much those around you appreciate all you do.
Do you remember your first bike? Did you know about it beforehand? Were you excited as you waited for it? You may even remember the exact model and colour. One of the most amazing things about receiving bike donations, and then gifting these bikes to children in the Hamilton community, is that a bike that was collecting dust is now bringing great joy to someone in the same city. As REAL MEN Hamilton delivers bikes throughout the city, we see children waiting for that new set of wheels. Then we witness the joy and excitement the gift of a bike can bring. Join us by donating a bike, and make a difference in the life of someone else…
2021 has presented more bike requests than ever before. Hundreds of children, and their families, are in need of a quality used bike, and REAL MEN Hamilton has made it their mission to meet that need. With the generous and continued support of Living Hope Church, we are committed to delivering bikes to children in our great city. A sense of freedom, playing outdoors with friends, and increased self-esteem, as mastering the riding of a bike becomes a reality, are just some of the benefits this gift can provide. Watching children take off on their new wheels (helmet on of course) is great joy! Thank you to everyone in the community who have donated quality used bikes. Together we can make a difference.
REAL MEN Hamilton is committed more than ever to helping children in our community with the gift of a bike. This year, we are receiving more requests than ever from families who would like to see their children out riding in the Spring and Summer months. We would like to meet these needs, recognizing that the gift of a bike is more than two (or three) wheels – it is the opportunity to get outdoors, have fun, learn to ride, grow in confidence and independence, and just be a kid! Remember your first bike? All bikes and helmets are free, and delivered to you. Our aim is to serve the people of this great city of Hamilton and give to others. Together we can make a difference! Please contact us with your requests at firstname.lastname@example.org
As many people make Hamilton their home, there is perhaps no better way to explore the trails and waterfront, the parks and waterfalls, than to jump on a bike and ride. REAL MEN Hamilton partnered with Wesley Urban Ministries to provide bikes and helmets for newcomers, who were keen to explore our great city on two wheels.
As we gift bikes to people in our Hamilton community, we always recognize the gift of a bike is more than the bike itself. It is freedom to travel, wider access to all parts of the city, a means of meeting up with friends, or commuting to work or study. In short, the gift of a bike creates opportunities.
With increased isolation and time indoors, during COVID19, the need for bikes has increased. REAL MEN Hamilton embraced this increased need, and gave away more bikes in 2020 than in any previous year. We welcome all people to our great city of Hamilton, and if you have the need for wheels, please contact us.
