2 Wheels 2 Mobility awards bike to Chris Herrrera

Bill Campbell presented a bicycle to Chris Herrera at the Alternate School, just outside the IM Fairgrounds, on Wednesday morning December 19.

The bicycle was awarded on behalf of 2 Wheels 2 Mobility, a project of the Burney-Fall River Bicycle Association that provides refurbished bikes to local citizens in need of transportation in the area.

Mr. Campbell said, “Chris came to my attention with Mr. Estes Letter to the Editor (Mt Echo) describing how Chris ran from his Fall River Mills home to the Intermountain Fairgrounds, four miles, to return keys he had inadvertently taken home.  Important fact is Chris ran after midnight.”

Describing Chris, Hummer Estes, one of his employers, said “Ethics and integrity, two words that fit hand in hand with this kid.”

This is the fourth bicycle awarded by the “2 Wheels 2 Mobility” program.
