ASSIST Software participates in the Donate a Bicycle Campaign
Fri, 14 Jun 2019
Do you remember your first bike? Do you remember the feeling of joy you had when you learned to ride the bike and all the adventures you went on with it?
The summer holidays are coming up and many children would love to spend their holidays riding bikes with their friends. Unfortunately, for many children in Suceava this will not be possible as their families are not able to afford to buy bikes.
The concept behind the “Donate a Bicycle” campaign came from Mircea Petriuc, a volunteer at “Save the Children Suceava”, who wants to help bring smiles to the faces of children in Suceava. This campaign involves gathering second-hand and new bikes and then donating them to children from various schools in and around Suceava.
ASSIST Software joined this cause and donated 10 new bicycles to children from "Niculae Popinceanu" School - Mihoveni and ”Aurelian Stanciu” School - Salcea.
Many employees in ASSIST Software are passionate about cycling and regularly go on bike rides and participate in biking competitions as part of the ASSIST Biking Club. In addition to the 10 new bicycles donated by the company, members of the ASSIST Biking Club and other employees also contributed to the campaign by donating their old bicycles that they no longer use but are still in good condition.
This campaign started on 15th May 2019 and ended on 14th June 2019, which is the last day of school for children here in Romania. The bikes were given out to the children on their last day of school as graduation gifts.
ASSIST Software strongly believes in promoting sport and a healthy lifestyle. By donating to this cause, we hope to encourage children to get into cycling and also to reward them for doing well in school.
We express our thanks to everyone that was involved and donated in this campaign!
ASSIST Software supports performance!
