Humble Sons Bike Co & The 5th Annual K95.5 Bikes for Kids Give-A-Way
What's the Mission?
A bike is so much to a kid. It’s joy. It’s freedom. It’s adventure. It’s good times with friends. It becomes central to kid’s life teaching responsibility, the importance of safety, and the awesome responsibility of independence and self-reliance.
We give brand new bikes, helmets, and locks to kids that need them.
We think every kid should have a bike.
Why We Love Their Work

The Pathway to Hope will connect the Greenwood Cultural Center, on the north side of the IDL, with John Hope Franklin Reconciliation Park, about two blocks away on the south side of the freeway. The groundbreaking was part of the annual John Hope Franklin Symposium’s community walk, which began in the park named for Franklin and roughly circled the old Greenwood neighborhood.
