Trike-A-Thon benefits St. Jude's

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Dozens of students from the ASU Early Learning Center put their trike-riding skills to the test Friday for a worthy cause.

The second annual St. Jude's Trike-A-Thon is a week-long program that teaches the children about riding-toy safety.

The students brought in trikes and helmets to today's event to practice the rules they learned this week.

"Accidents do happen on bicycles and with them learning the safety of bicycles and wearing the helmets and the importance of wearing the pads, then this will prevent accidents room happening."

The kids were also able to participate in field day activities like tug-of-war.

The event helped raise money for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital research and treatments.
