The LA Kings and Blue Shield of California, in collaboration with Bikes for Kids Foundation, surprised ISANA Achernar Academy’s entire third grade class with brand-new Huffy bicycles and helmets during a special school assembly.
Students were asked to write an essay for a writing competition reflecting upon Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech and their own future aspirations. The school’s 68 third graders assembled to hear the names of the three essay contest winners and shortly after, an announcement was made, that everyone was going home with a bike.
Members of the LA Kings Ice Crew and both current and former Kings players helped handout the bikes.
