Academy Sports donates Bikes

| December 19, 2015


VALDOSTA — Academy Sports + Outdoors donated 30 bikes and 30 youth helmets to W.G. Nunn Elementary School as part of its annual Holiday Bike Donation program.

For the past 13 years, Academy has donated thousands of bikes and helmets to local schools and this season donated bikes and helmets to more than 130 schools throughout the South, Southeast, and Midwest.

W.G. Nunn was able to establish its own criteria for awarding the bicycles to 15 girls and 15 boys. A 30 Day Reading Challenge was decided upon for 1st and 2nd grade students. They were to read as many books within the 30 days and take as many AR quizzes as possible. Students had to maintain an 80% or better average. The top 15 girls and 15 boys were awarded bikes.

Gentlemen from Assemblers Inc., who assembled all of the bikes, were also on hand to adjust seats and handle bars for each new owner. Thank you, students, for your hard work and Academy Sports + Outdoors for the amazing opportunity you provided for W.G. Nunn students!
