Pro BMX Athlete Nigel Sylvester And Nigel Sylvester Foundation Gift 10 Bikes For The Holidays

New York City, NY (December 20, 2021) – Professional BMX athlete Nigel Sylvester and the Nigel Sylvester Foundation, alongside sponsor Specialized Bicycles, surprised 10 deserving children from the Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens with brand new bikes to commemorate the holiday season.

The Boys & Girls Club of Metro Queens identified 10 students of various ages who displayed rewarding behavior in the classroom or around the Club to receive these bikes as the organization concluded its 2021 programming.

“I love my bike! I plan to ride it every day during the Christmas break,” said Metro Queens Club Kid, Joshua J. “I asked my mother for a bike, so this worked out perfectly!”

“This was such a treat for him. He asked for a bike, but because of financial hardships I couldn’t get him one, but thanks to the Nigel Sylvester Foundation, his holiday wish came true. Thank you so much. I’m truly grateful.” Said Joshua’s mother

“Getting a bike for Christmas is one of the greatest feelings you can have as a kid. I’m excited to share the joy of bicycling with these deserving kids for the holidays” said Sylvester.
