Confidence Elementary School is seeking support for a fleet of 20 bikes, helmets, kickstands and curriculum.
I am respectfully requesting for the bicycles and necessary safety equipment for the All Kids Bike program. We are a very rural school located in Putnam County, WV, with 58% of our students receiving free or reduced lunch. We are surrounded by farm land where there is very little concrete, or even flat areas to ride or even learn to ride a bike.Here at Confidence Elementary, we have the perfect area to implement this program along with a locked building for storage. Behind our school is the bus “turn around” circle that is flat, paved, and can be safely blocked of to all vehicles with safety cones. Funding this project would greatly be appreciated and benefit our students by giving them the opportunity to learn a lifelong skill and physical activity they can use throughout their lifetime. They would also then be able to pass on this skill by teaching others, broadening the impact of this program. -Andrea Wilson Combs, PE & Health
