OUR VISION

Every parent deserves the opportunity to gift their child his or her first bike and to experience the joy and excitement that a first bike brings to a young child’s life.

All P4P proceeds go directly to our youth population.

THE VALUE

… of giving gifts and improving the life of others should be instilled in our peers and especially our children.

Help Support Our Communities!

At Pedals 4 Peanuts, 100% of our donations and support goes directly into providing families and youths with bicycles and helmets. This means your dollar matters and directly benefits the youth we serve in Charleston, Dorchester, and Berkeley counties.

2017 Goals

Over the past several years P4P has worked with numerous partners to assemble and gift bicycles within the tri-county area, and we sincerely appreciate the support of each of these partners. For 2017, P4P is coordinating with Boeing and several local law enforcement departments to assemble and deliver more than 500 bikes. By providing bicycles to our local officers, we hope to positively impact even more children while providing a tool for our officers to interact and improve relationships within the community. On behalf of P4P, thank you for your support over the past several years. We look forward to continued growth in 2018.
