San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon recently teamed up with Rally® to host a “Holiday Bike Build” for children of service members stationed at Naval Base San Diego. The event showcased simple steps that families can take to live healthier lives, and gave 52 military kids the opportunity to “trick out” brand new Diamondback bikes that they got to take home.
“I wasn’t fortunate to get bikes and things like that when I was younger, and I know as a kid I would have loved to have one of these bikes,” Gordon told the San Diego Union-Tribune. “I don’t care what color. It could have been pink, and I would have loved to have it.”
