Flying Piston Benefit Donates Bikes to Ormond Beach Elementary Through our Bike Week Charity Breakfast
The Flying Piston Benefit, working with Bruce Rossmeyer’s Daytona Harley-Davidson and AllKidsBikes.org, donates Strider bikes and balance bikes to the Ormond Beach Elementary school.
Ormond Beach Elementary School is a public school located in Ormond Beach, FL, which is in a small city setting. This is the same elementary school that Shelly and Mandy Rossmeyer attended as kiddos. Test scores at this school are above the state average.
“Bikers are very generous people,” Mandy Rossmeyer said. “… We had people coming from out of our area here to help raise money for a local school and for our community, which I think is great.”
P.E. Teacher Ryan Moore is Excited About the Bike Program
“We are so excited to begin the ‘ALL KIDS BIKE’ program at OBE,” explained Ryan Moore. “Our Principal, Shannon Hay, is 100% behind me implementing the new program as soon as possible and getting our kids riding.”
As a former PE teacher, Rossmeyer said she feels it’s important for kids to go outside and be active. Knowing how to ride a bike is a step towards encouraging that, and the All Kids Bike program also provides helmets, as well as training and curriculum for teachers.
