Wheels to Africa: Winston Duncan of Arlington was 10 years old when he returned from a family vacation in Zimbabwe where he was struck by the distances the people - young and old -had to walk to find food, water and medical care. How could he help? His answer was to collect and send used bikes to Africa. In 2011, there were more than 200 volunteers and 957 bikes. Winston wants to replicate this success across the United States so please help!
