The Delaware Coalition for Healthy Eating and Active Living (DE HEAL), along with the Division of Public Health, will raffle off two bikes and helmets at the Delaware State Fair on July 23.
Advanced Sports International contributed two 20-inch Fuji bikes for 10-to-12-year-olds. The raffle will begin at 9 a.m. with the drawing beginning at 1 p.m. in the Delaware Electric Cooperative Free Entertainment Tent across from the Midway entrance.
Children only may enter after they play a game about bike safety and physical activity. Winners do not need to be present and they will be contacted by 5 p.m. on July 23.
"Bicycling is a wonderful way to increase physical activity, burn calories and tone muscles," said DPH Director Dr. Karyl T. Rattay. "Cycling is recommended for persons of all ages, and presents opportunities for family time."
