Senthil Kannan, Boy Scout Troop 1983, completed his Eagle Scout Project. With the help of Yvette Hess and Keith Oberg from Bikes for the World and over 25 volunteers, a total of 77 bikes were collected. Senthil wants to thank Rhonda Krafchin, REI Fairfax Outreach Specialist, for providing a collection site.

This collection took place in September at the REI in Fairfax Corner. Bikes For The World works with partner charities in developing countries who train and hire local people to recondition bikes and distribute them to individuals in need of affordable transportation.
