RED WHITE & BIKE
We honor children and younger siblings of Purple Heart Recipients, both combat wounded and killed in action
MARCH 21, 2021 – BIKE FOR LITTLE HEROES
After extensive review, Operation Red, White and Bike has decided that the Pandemic makes it difficult to produce the quality ride/fundraiser that our leaders and you, our loyal supporters, have grown accustomed to over the years. We are still committed to our work of honoring these special children of our nation’s Purple Heart recipients with new bicycles and we are sad that we will miss another opportunity to raise funds to expand our work to more Purple Heart families.
We have been blessed over the years to have had the financial support of Fast Track Specialties and had it not been for them, weathering this storm would have been difficult.
Until this pandemic is corralled, we would appreciate it if you would brainstorm fundraising opportunities that you might personally consider in support of our work. Over the years creative people have done things like sponsor birthday fundraisers, Ice Bucket Challenges, Solo Bike rides, Walks or Runs. Use your imagination and once you raise funds for our work just send them to our P. O. Box listed on our WEB
Page. As we do not have any paid staff all money you send will be used in support of our work with these special children and their families.

…FOR THE LITTLE HEROES!
FOR THE LITTLE HEROES
Children and younger siblings of combat veterans who have been wounded or killed in action make a special sacrifice. Operation Red, White and Bike is dedicated to recognizing this incredible sacrifice that is too often overlooked. We do so through a special gift of a world-class bicycle for these little heroes, the young sons, daughters and siblings of our country’s Purple Heart recipients. Kids love bikes! We provide a high-quality, designer bike that has been selected by the child and customized to tell the story about the service of their parent or older sibling. This gift will provide the child much pleasure while reminding others of their parent’s or sibling’s service and love of country; this is a unique way to say “thanks”.
We Lead The Field!
