Originally, Neptune was an early responding vehicle at the Twin Towers in New York on September 11th, 2001. The firetruck was donated to Bike Bald as the organizations’ community educational & awareness vehicle and is beloved by both children and adults.
Neptune’s involvement within the community is overwhelming, as it actively attends City events, Park District events, School events, residential community events, hospital escorts for children, parades, cycling and marathon events, weddings, photo shoots, homecoming/proms, and much more.
Bike Bald maintains all the upkeep and maintenance for the fire truck, which is primarily provided by volunteers and local companies. Monetary donations contribute to repairs, fuel, new tires and other replacement parts as needed, as well as the educational material distributed at events.
Often Neptune is invited to neighborhood, community & school events. Neptune has even carried newlyweds to their reception.
Other events in which Neptune has been involved:
• Summer Camps
• Grand Openings
• Car Shows
• Charitable head shaving events “Neptune has his own barber chair”
• Block parties
• Touch a trucks – community safety events
