Biking 4 Books raises $15K for SLPS Foundation

ST. LOUIS -- Biking 4 Books more than doubled its donation year-to-year for the St. Louis Public School Foundation.

In 2013, the nonprofit, which raises money for public schools through an annual bike ride, raised $7,000. In 2014, that number increased to $15,000.

The money will be used to purchase books at five St. Louis public schools-- Adams Elementary, Ashland Elementary, Lexington Elementary, Patrick Henry Downtown Academy and Piere Laclede Elementary.

Biking 4 Books says the number of participants also doubled, with more than 200 riders taking part.

The third Biking 4 Books event will take place on April 25, 2015.
