A South Carolina elementary school teacher raised over $80,000 through GoFundMe so every child at her school could have a bicycle to not only enjoy, but to help them get to and from school.
Katie Blomquist is a first grade teacher at Pepperhill Elementary School and came up with the idea after hearing a student wanting a bike but couldn't afford it.
"I had no idea what I was getting into...and it became a thousand times more amazing than I ever dreamed. I didn't really think about how much would go into it. I just thought, 'Let me see if I can do this' ... I wanted to make family memories."
