Reviews for Bikes For Kids Utah

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Bikes for Kids Utah fundraisers with our school and the community for the past 4 years. This organization has been a great experience in providing my children an opportunity to give to those in need, while gaining physical benefits for themselves at the same time. Bike for Kids board members have been great to attend and support fundraisers big and small. Thank you!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing the children raising the money cheer and develop pride in helping others.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Keep getting the word out there.

I have been involved with Bikes for Kids Utah since 2006. I have watched this organization change the life of children. Through the Bike give away, children in need have had the opportunity to have their own bike, begin a exercise program that can and will continue throughout their life. I am always impressed with the dedication of those involved in the organization to change the life of a child. I have watched the eyes of children as they pick up their bike, many would never have the ability to own a new bike...they treasure the bike...every child that I have interacted with said "Thank You", how often do we remember to say "Thank You"! This organization may be small, but the Hearts of those involved are large.

I have personally experienced the results of this organization with my niece participating and receiving a bike.

I would hope that a full time fundraising person would offer to work with the organization.

Bikes for Kids is awesome. The fact that so many kids get the benefit of a bike is amazing.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching the kids learn about bike safety and then going home with a new bike is rewarding. I know I still remember getting my own bike as a kid.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I would find a way to follow-up with more of the children as to their experiences with the bikes. I'm sure there are some great stories.

I've had the great pleasure of being a member of the Planning Board for Bikes for Kids for the past several years. It's been a privilege to work with a number of dedicated individuals in this capacity, all for a wonderful cause.
The opportunity to be a part of an organization that annually gives 1000 economically disadvantaged Utah children a new bike and helmet is fantastic. Additionally, as Bikes for Kids continues to be a going concern we work to develop all the elements of our charter to benefit this community.
Most importantly, it's the smiles and joy of the children who receive the bicycles that matters.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Seeing that the childen who have received the bikes are often riding to and from school.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

I challenge Bikes for Kids to continue to develop opportunities, per it's charter, to encourage good health and activity among Utah children.

Last year, the second grade students from my school received bikes. They were so excited to participate in the Bike Safety Rodeo, wear their new helmets, and ride away on their shiny new bikes. Their smiles were contagious!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Nothing!

Bikes for Kids is an incredible organization which provides 1000 bikes each year to 1000 kids. With the rise in childhood obesity, bikes for kids not only provides bikes for underpriveldged and at risk children, but takes kids away from TV. They are now out exercising. There is nothing like seeing the kids learn about bike safety, but seeing their bike being built and then riding away on it. Think about the adventures that you had as a child on your bike. The charity also brings together the community in annual rides and auction events.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

I happen to know someone who received the services from this organization and it has made the biggest difference in this child. The volunteers all leave with such a sense of accomplishment and pride

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create more awareness that this charity exists

Bikes for Kids is an amazing organization that brings kids together to put a smile on their face. Every kid wants to own a bike and be able to ride around with their friends and family. Unfortunately, many families are not in the position to provide a bike for their child. This organization gives these children the opportunity to receive a bike like many of their friends and enjoy the benefit of it. The organization also provides safety tips and gear to make sure the children are safe and prepared before riding their bike. Overall it is an amazing non profit organization who really cares about the needs and desires of children. Together we can make a difference! Every kid deserves it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

seeing the happiness it brings to each child's life.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

not make any changes...
