York — The York County Literacy Council presented BMX bikes, donated by Adventure Cycling & Fitness, to Kaylyn Trout and Sierra Jenkins, winning students of the 2012 Buck A Book Reading Program bike drawing.
Students from school districts around York County were entered into the drawing when they participated in the program. Jim Seevers and Tim Rodencal of Adventure Cycling & Fitness presented the bikes on the field at York Revolution games.
It was a surprise for both girls as their names were announced at the Buck A Book games. Kaylyn received her bike at the York Revolution game on May 22 and Sierra received her bike at the May 24 game.The reading program motivates students to read and become involved in community service by providing prizes to the students for different levels of fundraising. Students read books and raise money for literacy causes in York County. Participating students are also made aware of the difficulties illiterate adults face on a daily basis.
