Chargers surprise kids with new bicycles

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Chargers on Tuesday helped spread holiday cheer to students at Baker Elementary School by giving 151 students brand new, shiny bikes and helmets.

Second and third graders believed they were gathering to hear results of an essay contest, but were surprised as Chargers players paddled their way in on bikes.

Each year, the Chargers organization teams up with Bikes for Kids and donates bikes to kids at one school, but the charity visits kids at countless schools and has given away 42,000 bikes and helmets.

One-hundred-percent of donations go towards purchases of those gifts for children who live in areas of need.
