Explore. Dream. Bike. Thrive. We use bikes to inspire and empower kids to lead healthy, active and happy lives. All kids deserve the chance to own a bike. In our Let’s Pedal program, elementary students in high-risk neighborhoods set goals in healthy living, bike safety and bike repair skills. The kids work hard to achieve their goals and earn their very own brand-new bikes.
Do you remember your first bike? Think about the sense of freedom, adventure and fun it brought you. It’s a quintessential part of childhood that all kids deserve to experience. Together, we can create a community where health, happiness and adventure are enjoyed by all children. Since 2005, we have provided over 850 bikes to kids in need, hosted 38 rides with over 1,300 participants, and have educated over 1,400 kids in bike safety skills. We deliver joy, one bike at a time!
Thanks for giving us your birth year. There is a special matching grant available to the organization in each category that garners the most donations from folks in their 20's and 30's. One of the big focuses of this campaign is to encourage younger citizens to become more active donors.
When Give! ends at the stroke of midnight, December 31, 2012, our goal is to have raised more than $800,0000 -- that's $100,000 more than we raised last year. To help us on our way, generous local businesses, foundations and individuals have pledged more than a quarter million dollars in Matching Grants and Friendly Competition Awards for our 58 participating nonprofits.
