Saturday, September 10, 2016, registration: Begins at 11:00 am Marinatown Yacht Harbor, N. Ft. Myers (3440 Marina Town Lane)
Come out, have fun and support your community! In addition to providing a fun family event for families, the purpose of the Trike-A-Thon is to raise money to help support single moms and their children in SWFL. The event will encourage good sportsmanship, physical education and bike safety. Each child will race other children in their age group. In addition to the race there will be a Karate and martial arts demonstration, face painting, and other fun vendor booths to visit and enjoy.
Children have the opportunity to collect donations to win various prizes. Donations can be collected prior to the event. Children are not required to obtain donations in order to participate but every donation helps and stays in our community. All you need to participate is your child’s bike, helmet and pledge sheet donations if you were able to obtain any.
For some added fun there will also be an adult relay race where parents have the opportunity to participate in the Adult Trike event. Use your child’s “trike” and compete for the win! Prizes will be awarded to the winning team.

A Mom’s Helping Hand of SWFL is a 501(c)(3) charity designed to assist struggling single mothers (and their children) while working one, two, sometimes three jobs to support their children; only to realize all of this work and sacrifice means they sacrifice valuable time so important to "raise" the loved ones they are working so hard for.
A Mom’s Helping Hand of SWFL is here to lend a helping hand and let those families know they're not alone via support meetings, donations of bare necessities, training classes (parenting, budgeting, self-defense, job interviewing techniques and general life skills), family fun events, holiday and birthday gifts, school supplies, and resource referrals. These programs can make a world of difference in the lives of a single mom and her children.
