WEST TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (WTHI) - 30 children will have a brand new bike just in time for the holidays.

That's thanks to a generous donation.

On Wednesday, Academy Sports donated 30 bicycles to West Vigo Elementary School.

The process started months ago.

That's when teachers compiled a list of 30 students who exhibited great character traits in and out of the classroom.

Those students were also in need of a bike.

Organizers are grateful to Academy Sports for the bikes.

They say the donation teaches students a lot.

"Whether it's with your job or with your family...or whatever you do, to get rewarded for making the right choices is always heartwarming. It makes you feel good and makes you want to do more for others," Principal Amy Bosley said.

Academy Sports will give away about $250,000 in bikes across the U.S.
