Building bikes for deserving kids, promoting health and happiness.

Where: 500 Seneca Atrium

Hosted By: Trusted Gives, Dion’s Dreamers, Highmark BCBS of WNY, Big Brothers Big Sisters


What: Trusted Gives partnered with Dion Dawkins and Dion’s Dreamers to host a Build-a-Bike event for 20 children and their families in the 500 Seneca building in downtown Buffalo. This event was an offshoot of the successful collaboration during 716 CommUNITY day. We reached out to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Western New York to select families who would benefit from the event, and Highmark BCBS of WNY sponsored the bikes for the children! They also came to the event and provided fun activities and games for the kids to enjoy. Dion Dawkins and his significant other Diayanna attended the event and sat down with the kids to help them build their bikes. The event catering was donated by Just Pizza of West Seneca. Overall, it was a successful evening. The children had a safe and fun evening and got to leave with a free bike and helmet.
