(FOX 2) - Cruising the neighborhood on two wheels is a rite of passage for kids, but not all get that opportunity.
That's where the Oakland County Sheriff's Office Re-cycle For Kids program comes in. The program collects, refurbishes and has made hundreds of bikes available at no cost through a variety of non-profit organizations who serve clients in need.
Joining FOX 2 is Sheriff Michael Bouchard, along with Dan Gutfreund of Dan Gutfreund Realty Group, who's helping kick off this year's efforts with a big donation.
To kick off the program this spring, the Gutfreund team is donating 50 new bikes and is encouraging the community to join them.
Here's how you can help:
