Brian Lopes, an All Kids Bike national ambassador, is raising funds to place the Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Program elementary schools in Orange County, CA. 100% of the funds donated to this page will support this program.
"My journey on two wheels started at 4 years old in Mission Viejo, CA. My bike helped me build confidence, independence, and friendships. Then, I turned my hobby into a career, racing bicycles worldwide, and earned my place in the history books for both the BMX and MTB Hall of Fame.
As riders, we all know the joy that riding brings us and that the younger you start, the better. Riding teaches balance, and balance is the key to everything we do in life, so why not start with learning to balance on your bicycle at a young age and the rest will all fall into place.
I’m passionate about getting kids on the right track towards a healthy lifestyle and I’m committed to helping kids learn how to ride bikes in school, starting with the town where I grew up." -- Brian Lopes
PE Teacher Ian Corso, Laguna Beach Unified School District, is eager to get his students rolling, stating: "I am extremely excited and looking forward to implementing the All Kids bike Program as a result of Brian's hard work and dedication. Our students will continue to learn, grow, and strive to learn new things and conquer fears while building confidence and relationships that last a lifetime."
Every $10 teaches another child to ride a bike in school!
Brian's efforts to support schools in his community kicked off with a raffle, where 6 winners received incredible prizes donated to support the cause. In the first two weeks of his campaign, Brian raised nearly $25,000 and funded 5 schools in Orange County, CA.
Brian will continue to work toward reaching his goal of funding 11 All Kids Bike Kindergarten PE Programs in his community, which will teach thousands of kids how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class.
All Kids Bike® is a national movement to teach to every child in America how to ride a bike in Kindergarten PE class. The movement is led by the Strider Education Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, and places Learn-To-Ride Programs into public schools for free, using tax-deductible donations from individuals, businesses, and organizations.
