For the fifth consecutive year, the Laborde Earles Law Firm will give away bikes and helmets to deserving children in the Lafayette and CENLA communities. The giveaway is part of the law firm’s “Bike It Forward” event, which promotes community involvement, child safety, child health and well-being.
To apply or nominate a child to receive a new bicycle and helmet, please complete an application at www.bikeitforward.org or stop by one of the firm’s office locations in Alexandria, Lafayette or Marksville. The deadline for submitting applications is May 10th, winners of the bicycles and helmets will be notified by May 17th, and bicycles can be picked up on May 23rd, 2-5 p.m. at the Alexandria office, and on May 24th 9-11 a.m. at the Lafayette office. As part of the “Bike It Forward” event, Laborde Earles will have food, music and a bicycle obstacle course for the kids to test out their new bikes.
