Tikes raise thousands for St. Jude’s at Trike-a-thon

JOHNSON CITY, TN (WJHL) – A tikes and trikes traffic jam at the ETSU Child Study Center Wednesday will mean big bucks for charity.

Pre-school children rode their trikes, bikes, and anything else on wheels in the annual Trike-A-Thon.

Families of the children asked for donations for the young riders, and all the proceeds will go to the St. Jude’s Foundation.

“We’ve been doing this for 22 years and we’ve raised over $21,000,” says Deb Oglesby, a child care specialist at the center.

Oglesby says they hope to raise over $3,000 through this year’s event.
