How it Started




This year marks the 6th year that OzarkRDG, Cypress Title, and Zachary Spine and Sports Rehabilitation have teamed up for the program. The event was started by Ozark's Kyle Watson who got the idea when a mentor from another state started a similar program. Over the past five years, they've given away more than 355 bikes, scooters, and EZ Rollers to 1st and 2nd graders at Rollins Place Elementary as a reward for completing the Roll into Reading challenge.
