Tess Palmer

Vice Chair of the Board

Tess has a Masters of Public Health from Emory University and makes maps for public health emergency response.

She is an absolutely amateur cyclist but her favorite way to get to know a city is by bike. Tess has planned the Give Away Day event for FB4K for the past two years, and now serves as the Vice Chair of the Board.

Tess commits her time to FB4K because she knows the sense of freedom and autonomy that a bike affords a child and wants to be a part of making that happen for kids in Atlanta.

Sprague is our communications guru with a background in PR and community engagement. She currently serves as Vice President of Client Services for The Molly Fletcher Company, where she manages speaking engagements, content development and social media.

A former college hoops player at Emory, she’s affectionately known as the non-cyclist of our group. You can find her cheering on her favorite sports teams, traveling the world, or checking out the newest restaurants around town. Sprague commits her time to FB4K because she loves seeing the smiles and pure joy on the kids’ faces at giveaway day.

Stephen Wolfe


Stephen owns and operates a contracting firm that provides construction, remodeling, and project management services for both residential and commercial clients. He is an incredibly detail-oriented leader who keeps the FB4K team on their toes and working towards their goals. Stephen isn’t necessarily a “bike-guy”, but loves working on his bikes and riding them up and down the Beltline with a special drink in the cup holder, stopping by any of the numerous “watering holes” along the way. Stephen is committed to Free Bikes 4 Kidz because we spell “Kidz” with a “z” and “for” with a number. On top of that, he understands how important it is for EVERY kid to have a bike and enjoys working with the top-notch human beings in the organization.

Nadine Peever

Board Member/Giveaway Day Coordinator

Nadine is a project manager at athenahealth, building the healthcare backbone. As a former Mobile Social ride leader, she has been actively involved in the Atlanta cycling community for several years. While not your standard spandex-clad cyclist, her riding experience ranges from a weekend-long 180-mile trek across Maine to your casual Sunday ride through the park.

While Nadine spends her days at athena connecting doctors to laboratories, she works with us to connect kids to bicycles. She loves the feeling of being “Bike Santa,” knowing the impact that a bicycle can have on a child’s life.

Jon Campbell

Board Member/Collection Coordinator

A native Atlantan, Jon developed a love for bikes at an early age. The freedom that a bike brought to his life translated to journeys and trail rides with friends as well as campground adventures on RV trips with his parents throughout the Southeast. After an extended time at college in South Georgia and a dismal collegiate tennis career, he returned to Atlanta to head the Sales Operations division of an automotive gasket manufacturer. Jon joined FB4K 4 years ago when looking for an organization to donate a child’s bike. FB4K quickly became a great opportunity to combine his love for bikes and to help kids experience the freedom that owning a bike brings. He signed up as a warehouse volunteer and never left. Most days you will find him biking to dinner in Chamblee or wakesurfing the beautiful waters of Lake Lanier. Jon is our Collection Coordinator and provides operational software support to the organization.
