KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Two organizations are hoping their newly formed event will give kids “another way to express themselves.”
Saturday, May 29, will be the first Bikes Up Guns Down event from 2-6 p.m. at Chilhowee Park. Humble Hero group and Men on a Mission organization are behind the new event. Prizes and games will be given out for all ages.
Ross Long of Humble Hero felt his group and Men on a Mission could make a difference in the community.
When Denzel Grant of Men on a Mission reached out, Long said “it was a no-brainer” to be a part of event.
Grant, founder of Men on a Mission, says the idea was discussed a few months ago, but only came to fruition a couple of weeks ago.
