Dreams really do come true!

Dreams Do Come True…

The friendship between Novato Fire District’s Jason Pace and CrossFit owner Matt Barnes goes much deeper than just good friends.  They have also created a partnership to help children less fortunate to have their dream come true of owning a new bicycle.

Four years ago, NFD Firefighter/Paramedic Jason Pace began his dream by creating “Free Rides”, a non-profit bicycle program under the Novato Fire Foundation through the Novato Toy Drive.  His idea was to work with the Novato Youth Center to fulfill a child’s wish of a new bike during the holiday season.  Jason matched up with long- time friend Matt Barnes to provide the youth in the Novato community new bicycles that will also encourage a healthy lifestyle through fun and exercise.

This year, CrossFit owners; Matt and Nicole Barnes and Travis and Amy Brackett, and CrossFit members, donated $ 660.00 towards 10 new bicycles and helmets.  When Jason was asked how he knows how many bikes to buy and assemble, he said “it all depends on how many children have a new bike on their wish list.  It is all about fulfilling a dream from a wish list”.
