15 bikes for 15 special children

PRINCETON, IN (WFIE) - One man needs your help to do a good deed for fifteen very special children.  Big Mike wants to buy them bicycles.  He met these middle school students when they were on a field trip and he says they touched his heart.

Now, he is asking individuals and local businesses to help him raise enough money for him to buy a total of 15 bicycles.  He has already bought seven of them.

"I pushed and pushed," says Big Mike, the owner of Big Mike's Car Wash and Detail Shop in Princeton.  "So far, we have this many so I'm going to try to keep pushing to get them because I don't want to let those kids down because they're so special."

Big Mike hopes to give the bicycles to the students before Christmas but he also wants to surprise them so he is keeping the details a secret for now.
