All Kids Bike is raising funds to support schools in the Los Angeles area who have expressed interest in bringing the Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Program to their school in order to help children safely develop balance, mobility, environmental awareness, and facilitate exercise.
"We are excited to partner with All Kids Bike to bring this incredible level of engagement to our Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD) students. With the support of All Kids Bike, we are tackling childhood obesity by building confidence, muscle, endurance, and self-esteem one student at a time, through riding! " -- William Celestine, Director, LAUSD Wellness Programs
This partnership will bring together businesses, organizations, and individual community members to support the lifelong skill of learning to ride a bike through the Kindergarten PE Program. This program will provide sunnier days to kids in the Los Angeles area, and equip schools with everything they need to start the Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Program when the school bell rings once again.

Fundraising efforts will culminate with a press event in Los Angeles this fall, including an announcement and celebration of the implementation of the Kindergarten PE Program into Los Angeles Unified School District. More details to come!
