Dozens of Saginaw students get new bikes for essay contest

Dozens of kids are sporting their new bikes around the block, thanks to some generous donations Sunday.

Victorious Believers Ministries in Saginaw gave away 54 bicycles to kids in the community. The church partnered with Walmart and Kmart to distribute them to three local schools, as part of an essay contest.

The children had to write an essay answering "What can I do to help stop crime in my community?"

Pastor Chris Pryor said their responses both inspired and saddened him.

Students in first through fifth grades participated in the contest.

The giveaway coincided with National Bike Month in May.
