TAMPA (FOX 13) -

A wonderful Christmas tradition is continuing this year, as "Alex's Xmas for Kids" took place Wednesday morning.

In Tampa, people distributed more than 500 brand new bicycles.

The owner of Alex's BBQ in Tampa, Alex Cooks, has been collecting money from the community all year.  Thousands of dollars were donated.

Hillsborough County district employees will be picking up those new bikes from the Walmart in Tampa, then giving them to needy families. 

"Alex's Xmas for Kids" is in its 14th year, and they've given away more than 15,000 brand new bikes to the children of Tampa.
