Local Chevy dealers join forces for bike-a-thon

Lawton_Texoma Chevy dealers are collaborating for Christmas on a 36-hour bike-a-thon.

It kicked off at 7am Thursday, and will end Friday night at 6pm.  They're collecting bikes, toys, and donations to make sure several children in our area will have something bright and shiny waiting for them Christmas morning.

Steve Barnes, General Manager at Jim Glover Chevrolet in Lawton, said he anticipates they'll have several dozen bikes by the time it ends.

"For 40 dollars, to make a kid happy for Christmas morning, I don't think there is anything better than to see the look on that young kid's face when they know that Santa came by and brought them a bike," Barnes said.

If you'd like to donate, you can take your toys and bikes to Jim Glover Chevrolet in Lawton, Herb Easley Chevrolet in Wichita Falls, Four Stars Auto Ranch in Henrietta, Texas, and Wilmes Chevrolet in Altus.
