This is definitely one of my most favorite special events our preschool puts on. It is so much fun, and at the same time, it does so much good for the St. Judes foundation. The children get their parents to pledge money for them to ride in the Trike-a-thon. Some of them also get grandparents, aunts, uncles, neighbors anybody they want! to pledge also. They can either do a flat amount or they can pledge a certain amount per lap. It is much easier to just do flat amounts!! Anyway, we also have a best decorated bike/trike/scooter contest. Some of these kids go all out on this contest!! Helium balloons are a big favorite! The kids like to ride and watch their balloon trailing along behind them.
