I have been aware of Strider Bikes for about a dozen years now. I am amazed at the company growth. They have sold nearly 3 million bikes worldwide and hopefully inspired millions of kids to get off the couch, off the screen, and get outside and enjoy life on two wheels.
The Strider Education Foundation was formed as a 501c3 a few years ago. About two years ago Strider started a campaign called “All Kids Bike”. Its mission is to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class. The progress made in those two years has 248 schools in 37 states running the program. 41,000 kids are known to be learning to ride this year. The 5 year impact from those programs will result in nearly a quarter of a million more kids having learned to ride.
Money makes the world go ‘round, and in this instance, money makes the wheels go ‘round for these kids. The school program is delivering results in short order by equipping kids with a lifetime skill and increasing those kids’ health and happiness on a daily basis. The All Kids Bike program is so dialed in that it is being accomplished for just under $10/kid… tax-deductible.
To give you a sense of what this program is all about and how it is impacting lives… even beyond learning to ride, I encourage you to check out this short and glorious video of the program running in schools in South Dakota. We believed in this program so much that we put our money where our mouth is.
The Board of Directors has just set up a fundraising page to keep the momentum going. I’d love to have you join us on this most-worthwhile and rewarding mission.
For more information, I’m happy to discuss in more detail with you or you can find out more…
A donation of even $10 makes a difference and can be done with a credit card very quickly at: https://support.allkidsbike.
This will be the best $10 bucks you’ve spent all day and the videos will be the most uplifting you seen in ages!
