Military families are thanked by giving 95 kids new bikes

FAIRFAX, OH (FOX19) -

The Armed Forces Tickets Association (AFTA) is giving away 95 bikes to children who have lost family members or have had family members injured during their service in Iraq and Afghanistan. Also select children of active service members will receive a bike.

The 95 pre-selected children, ages 3 to 15-years-old, will be receiving bikes as a way to thank the families of fallen or injured soldiers.

Joyce Elkus, AFTA's founder and director, as well as AFTA's Board of Directors and several volunteers, including members of the U.S. Military will be on hand to hand out the bikes.

The give-a-way will take place at the Walmart on Red Bank Road. Bikes will be distributed in the parking lot along the right side of the store.
