The Boston Marathon represents an exciting opportunity to help CYCLE Kids bring bicycles to kids in underserved communities. Please join me to help CYCLE Kids in their work with schools, communities and local police officers to use the excitement of riding a bicycle to promote physical and emotional health for children who need additional help and support.
What a great experience to run the Boston Marathon in support of kids, schools and the local police departments that get involved with CYCLE Kids to build community and offer healthy options for these children! I can remember my father starting me down a grassy hill on my first blue bicycle--and the grounding importance of that experience. Everyone deserves an opportunity to enjoy the fresh air, freedom and fitness cycling can provide.
The Boston Marathon also offers a chance to honor the dedication and tireless efforts of police, fire and emergency service officers and the public safety agencies they serve.
The mission of CYCLE Kids is to strengthen the emotional and physical health of kids by inspiring them to lead active and nutritious lifestyles, using the fun and practical skill of riding a bike. CYCLE Kids gives schools a well-researched and successful program that impacts thousands of children each year; helping them improve success in their academic studies, social development, and self confidence, all while tackling the overweight and obese conditions children are facing by learning how to live healthy lifestyles.
CYCLE kids is an official charity of the Boston Athletic Association for the 2016 Boston Marathon! Please help support our dedicated team of runners in raising funds for our organization, celebrating physically active lifestyles, and giving kids an opportunity for a healthier, more successful future!
Please DONATE whatever you can. Your generosity is greatly appreciated.
