JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Christmas came early for 50 Jacksonville children. Jaguars wide receiver Allen Robinson helped surprise 50 deserving students with bikes and helmets Tuesday.
Academy Sports + Outdoors and Allen Robinson’s Within Reach Foundation teamed up to donate the bikes and helmets to 50 children from the Boys & Girls Clubs of Northeast Florida.
On top of the bike and helmet that all 50 children received, they also had the chance to take a photo with Robinson and get an autograph from the Jaguars leading receiver.
Academy’s annual bike donation program occurs throughout December and benefits over 4,000 boys and girls at 120 separate donation events.
The bike donation is held annually to provide local schools with an opportunity to reward children during the holidays with bikes and helmets for perfect attendance, academic performance and good behavior.
Allen Robinson's Within Reach Foundation’s mission is to provide education opportunities and resources to low-income and inner-city Jacksonville-area students to help put success within their reach.
