The mission of the CYCLE Kids program is to strengthen the emotional and physical health of children by giving them the skills to lead active and healthy lifestyles, using the fun and practical skill of riding a bike. CYCLE Kids provides schools with bikes, helmets and a curriculum, training for teachers and volunteers, and program assessments. Students are provided with their own textbooks, “The Student and Parent Guide to Biking and Healthy Eating,” designed to be shared with their family.
CYCLE Kids is a national organization with programs in ten states and the Navajo Nation in Arizona, reaching over 3000 children each year, over 28,000 since inception. Since 2004, CYCLE Kids has engaged children in physical activity to address the health and emotional issues facing today’s children. The program is built on the belief that the simple and captivating skill of riding a bike changes lives.
As an Official Charity of the 2020 Boston Marathon, our goal is to raise funds to reach more children living in underserved communities with the CYCLE Kids program. Your donation will give students access to a learning experience that will not only teach them how to ride a bike and how to make healthier eating choices, but will help them build confidence and self-esteem, create supportive relationships, succeed academically, and create a foundation for future success.
