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.

The Great!

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.

The Great!

Bikes for Kids Utah is an amazing organization staffed completely by volunteers. 100% of the money raised goes towards providing bikes and helmets to kids in Utah.

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.

I have been involved with Bikes for Kids since the inception and have been amazed at how it has changed children's lives. To be able to see a child receive a bike that ordinarily would not be able to afford one is amazing.

I love the bike rodeo and the fact that they teach the children
proper bike saftey. Bike safety is just as important as giving the child the experience of having their very own bike.

The children get to come and pick up their bike at a bike giveaway. Getting to see the children participate in receiving their bikes and the bike safety rodeo is truly heartwarming.

Recently Bikes for Kids started requiring the children that received bikes to participate in a community activity in order to be eligible to receive a bike. Love this idea. It teaches the children responsibility and gives them the opportunity to give back to their community.

I'm a volunteer board member of Bikes for Kids Utah too, and really enjoy being involved. We give 1,000 bikes, helmets and locks to 2nd grade children attending Title 1 schools in Utah. Kids at those schools tend to be lower income kids and often their parents can't afford to give them bikes.

We host two to three fundraising rides in conjunction with our annual May Bike giveaway. It's very cool to see 300+ riders of all types riding to help provide bikes for the kids. It's even way more fun to see all the kids arrive at the bike giveaway and the huge smiles on their faces when they get their bikes.

The Great!

helping kids get a bike. A bike helps them gain confidence and gets them out of the house for some exercise.

get more riders participating in the May fundraising rides, more donors and volunteers.

I have been on the Board for "Bikes for Kids" for several years and I have seen the amazing impact it has had on the lives of the kids and families that have recieved bikes every year. If you haven't attended the May Event I would encourge you to do so, it is like Christmas day for alot of the kids when get their new bikes, its awesome to watch thier faces light up and to see them running around excited and happy. I am a bike rider and I enjoy being out on my bike riding, racing and training. So passing on this opportunity to kids that may not other wise have this opportunity is amazing. I have worked closely with the board and they all give tirelessly thier own time, money and dedication to this cause. No one on the board is paid, all of the money donated goes directly to funding the bikes, helmet, locks and T-shirts.
