It has happened!  We hit a pivotal milestone on September 20, 2012 at Paradise Elementary School in Las Vegas, Nevada during the international bicycle expo, Interbike.  Over 80 cyclists met up, loaded down backpacks, trailers, and panniers with book and cycled to several hundred ecstatic children.  However, there was one little girl that stood out!  Vivianna was a 3rd grader who received our 100,000th donated book.  It was not a surprise that the book was one from the Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, because it is one of the most popular books among late elementary school students.  We were excited to have several professional cyclists on our delivery as well, Dejay Birtch and Amanda Carrey (pictured above)!  We look forward to many more milestones, however this one was pretty special.
