A team of volunteers from Brooklyn, New York, started their day bright and early at the gym of a local school.

But it wasn’t to play basketball. Instead, they were assembling bicycles to surprise a group of underprivileged students.

Donated by bike companies Schwinn and Mongoose, 50 bikes were put together and tested in a school’s gym in under five hours. The charity Dare2B picked 50 struggling children to be surprised with brand-new bikes.

“To just own something new that’s yours — there’s nothing like that,” said Roxanna Colorado, the executive director of Dare2B.

All the children gathered in the gym before the big surprise. Then, the volunteers wheeled out all the bikes, which were adorned with colorful balloons.

In the video below, the kids get so excited and jump up from where they’re sitting, screaming at the top of their lungs! The kids are then asked to find the bike with their name on it and check out their new set of wheels.

“I love these bikes!” one child yells. They are so grateful to have new bikes and helmets provided to them, shouting out a huge thank-you to the charity.

See their adorable reactions below!
