DENVER -- More than 200 Denver children are riding a new set of wheels because of their hard work in the classroom.

The students were nominated by teachers and community organizations based on their good grades and good citizenship.

Denver Mayor Michael Hancock was at Manual High School on Sunday to present the winners with their new bicycle.

"For many of these young people, this is their very first bike, their very first bike of their own and certainly their first new bike so it is a phenomenal moment to see on their faces the sense of anticipation of getting their hands on that new bike," Hancock said.

Every year, local McDonald's owners and founders of the ASFAW Family Foundation give back to the community through their Arches of Hope bicycle giveaway. This was the 10th year for the event.
