Bay Area Bike Build with Blue Star Families and the San Francisco Giants

Military families have unique challenges, dealing with frequent moves, deployments, and transitions. This can be especially hard on the kids, as they adapt to change and new communities. To alleviate some of this stress, kids need opportunities to play and have fun, and just be kids.

As part of our commitment to bring play to our military families, CarMax joined together with the San Francisco Giants and Blue Star Families to provide some Bay Area military families with a well-deserved day of fun.

This summer, 20 children and their families came for a VIP tour of AT&T Park, the Giants’ stadium. These kids enjoyed a fun day at the ballpark, with behind-the-scenes stadium access and pizza. Little did these kids know, the tour was not the only reason their families were at the stadium.

While the families were busy touring the stadium, CarMax and Giants volunteers were busy building bicycles for each of the children to take home with them. The kids were surprised and delighted by their new bikes, which thrilled our associates and volunteers who worked together to assemble the bikes. The families also enjoyed the opportunity to meet the Giants mascot, Lou Seal.
