KFRG-FM in San Bernardino, Calif., helped provide local fourth graders in need with 1,100 brand new bikes. Teachers from San Bernardino, Riverside, Inyo and Mono counties nominated students in need who were considered outstanding classroom role models. The bike donations were part of the seventh annual Slater Bros. Charities and KFRG-FM radiothon, held every year to elicit donations from radio listeners to benefit the local children’s hospital. With every $200 donation that a radio listener made, a new bike was donated to a deserving fourth grade student. The students received the bikes at an event held at the city’s baseball stadium where friends and family watched as the fourth graders ran onto the field to get their new bikes.
