Good grades and improved behavior pay off for 100 Broward County students who were specially selected to receive brand new bicycles from the 100 Black Men of Greater Fort Lauderdale (100BMOGFL). In an effort to acknowledge students who are continuously making progress, the 100BMOGFL partnered with 16 Broward County schools to provide new bicycles in time for the holiday season.
“For the third consecutive year, the 100BMOGFL will a-ward students in Broward County with new bicycles for their scholastic achievements. The 100 Annual Bike Drive has become a signature event for our organization and we are very proud of the 100 students that will be receiving new bicycles. Often times our youth feel their hard work is only recognized in the class-room; the 100 Annual Bike Drive demonstrates an appreciation for academic excellence from the community. The goal is for the 100BMOGFL to continue to award 100 bikes annually to promote scholastic improvement,” said Dennis Wright, president of 100BMOGFL.
The shiny two-wheelers were given out on Dec. 6, 2008 at Central Broward Regional Park.
The 100BMOGFL is a non-profit organization whose mission is to improve the quality of life within our communities and enhance educational and economic opportunities for all African/Caribbean Americans. The 100BMOGFL, a chapter of 100 Black Men of America, is committed to the intellectual development of youth and the economic empowerment of the African/Caribbean American community.
