The first 15 Bikes bought for happy kids!sacokids15bikesmedNovember News Flash – The First 15 Bikes are Bought for Happy Kids!

Local businesses and individuals contributed $3,000 to a fund raising campaign to purchase 15 bikes for Saco Parks & Recreation kids to use on the Eastern Trail. Organizers hope that during the final stretch of fund raising this winter, another $2,000 will be donated so 10 more bikes can be purchased, completing the original goal of buying 25 bikes. Read the official press release here.

Kids on the John Andrews ET Bridge!We kicked this effort off by showcasing the new John R. Andrews Eastern Trail Bridge over Route One as a symbolic link from Saco’s past (250 years) to the city’s future (the kids). We staged a “250 KID MOB” on the bridge on July 24 — and filled the bridge with kids! Read one news story here, and a second story here.

We hope to complete this effort with your help! We are still looking for Corporate Sponsors to donate $250 each, and community donations of $2.50 and $25 from citizens who are as inspired as we are about kids, the Eastern Trail, and the beauty of Saco’s off-road bike and pedestrian trail.

Donations to the “250 KID MOB” Buy Bikes for Kids can be made by:

  • Drop off or mail a check made out to “Eastern Trail Alliance” (put ‘250 Kid Mob’ in the memo line) to Saco Parks & Recreation, 75 Franklin Street, Saco ME 04072
  • Visit for the latest updates on our fund raising progress
  • Drop by Saco City Hall and visit the Finance Department windows on the first floor

We want all of Saco to participate!

Just 3,000 people, contributing $2.50 each raises $7,500, enough to buy 25 quality bikes.

Let’s make it happen— TOGETHER!
