Photo finish at Williams and Fudge, and the winners are the children

December 4, 2012 

— The racers weren’t allowed to pedal and their feet couldn’t touch the ground once they shoved off. It was a coast to the finish.

The two- and three-wheel relay race is an annual event at Williams and Fudge in Rock Hill.

Employees raise money during the year to buy bicycles, tricycles and big wheels for disadvantaged children. Some donate bikes.

Before delivering a truckload to Toys for Tots and Toys for Happiness, the company gathers in the parking lot outside the Cotton Factory headquarters in downtown Rock Hill for the relay. They coast, so the bikes don’t get beaten up before they’re given to children for Christmas.

They collected 225 bikes, the most ever.
