The Bobby Labonte Foundation, founded by NASCAR Hall of Fame race car driver Bobby Labonte, continued its tradition of giving to children in need by building and donating 75 kid’s bikes Nov. 12 at the Salvation Army Ken Carlson Boys & Girls Club in Winston-Salem. The giveaway also included helmets and bike safety lessons provided by the Winston-Salem Police Department, Safe Kids Coalition and Brenner Children’s Hospital.
A bike build and giveaway has been an annual event, part of the Bobby Labonte Foundation charity bike ride, which benefits Triad children and families in need. More than $40,000 in proceeds from this year’s Labonte Roubaix, presented by Atrium Health Wake Forest Baptist Health Sports Medicine and Bee Safe Storage and Wine Cellar, went to JDRF’s North Carolina Chapter to help families affected by Type 1 diabetes.
