A total of 160 bikes were donated.


For the past 15 years, the Bikes for Tykes fundraiser has distributed more than 14,000 new bikes to kids in Henry, Patrick, and Franklin counties and the City of Martinsville.

On, Tuesday, December 3rd, Super Country 99.9 will broadcast their morning show with WDBJ7 Mornin' from the McDonalds off Tanyard Road in Rocky Mount to help the Bikes for Tykes fundraiser.

Super Country 99.9 co-host "Amy P" will climb on top of the golden arch at 5 a.m. and she will sit there until 99 bikes have been raised.

If you'd like to donate a new bike or cash, you can do so by stopping by the McDonalds in Rocky Mount off Tanyard Road from 5 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The goal this year is to collect 1,170 new bikes.

Other locations include Kroger on Wednesday, Dec. 4; Ruth's Place on Friday, Dec. 6; and Food Lion on Tuesday, Dec. 10.

Bikes that are collected during the campaign are distributed through the Salvation Army, which supplied the names of approved children.
