I've watched needy children receive a tool to exploration, fitness and joy because of Bikes for Kids Utah. I'm thrilled there is an organization that can provide children with a joy of childhood they wouldn't otherwise own.

Bikes for Kids Utah is a great organization that helps introduce kids to "the noblest invention" - the bike.
Every year kids who wouldn't otherwise be able to afford a bicycle get a chance to enjoy riding and start a long-term relationship with a great activity.
My company provides free
public relations and marketing support for the organization and their annual events.

Bikes for Kids Utah is an awesome organization that allows all children in Utah to experience the fun of having a bike. It's hard to imagine that some children do not have many things in life that bring them enjoyment. Imagine how many children could have a fun summer with a bike if this organization was to win $5,000.00!

Bikes for Kids is a non profit 100% volunteer organization that gives out 1,000 bikes to second graders each year. The students can but do not have to be affiliated with an organization such as a school or Boys & Girls Club. All Children in the organization receive a bike in May along with a helmet, bike lock, water bottle, t-shirt, health and safety instructions.
The organization hosts an event where children come, about 100 every 1/2 hour, check in receive a wristband, instructions on helmet and bike safety, a bike lock and a bag of goodies. They then participate in a bike safety rodeo. Children can take their bikes home in a box and assemble them or a bike shop and eagle scouts will assemble them on the spot. It is an exciting event with entertainment and music!

What an amazing experience to see 1,000 7 year olds receive a brand new bike! The students have to participate in a service project at their school or club before the event. It is an amazing experience for all!

I've been involved with BikesForKids for the past 6 years as a volunteer, board member, cyclist, mechanic, and spouse of the founder and president. In bike terms it has been a "fun ride". At the end of the day, all the hard work is forgotten when you see children enjoy their first bike and ride away. What a thrilling feeling that can be related to by people of all ages and backgrounds. BikesForKids goes about their business the right way with expenses and providing value for those involved.

Give enough bikes so all lower income kids in our community could have transportation by way of a bike.
