Soon after starting a volunteer position at R Community Bikes, a nonprofit that collects and repairs used bicycles to give away to needy children, Mark Yesul of Rochester, New York, found a new way to run things.

Mark uses his unusual ability to focus and passion for repetitive action to improve a tube repair system in ways most would overlook. The result is more bikes to more kids.

R Community Bikes also gives away bikes to community organizations and people with disabilities.
