Klock Werks, a long-time All Kids Bike supporter, is raising funds to place the Kindergarten PE Learn-To-Ride Program into elementary schools in South Dakota. The next school on the list is
Buchanan Elementary School in Huron, SD!
Klock Werks Owner, Brian Klock, is an All Kids Bike National Ambassador who has supported bringing the All Kids Bike Program to several schools across South Dakota. Being an industry-leading motorcycle builder, Brian knows the importance of getting children on two wheels early.
"Getting kids on bikes early is a key to healthy living, better community, and the future of our industry. For minimal dollars expended, the return on the investment per child is monumental," saysBrian. "I would like each parent, grandparent, uncle, and aunt, neighbor, and friend to consider giving $10 or more. I would love for the entire community t o participate so when these excited young folks tell their story, each person feels the connection, confidence, and pride it can create in these kids. Why have one or two donors pay the way, when you can garner the support and cohesiveness of an entire city."
Klock Werks Brand Specialist and All Kids Bike National Ambassador, Alan Bainbridge, has worked with Klock Werks as well as individually to get South Dakota Schools on the All Kids Bike map. Recently, Alan and his wife, Jennifer, worked with the community to bring the Kindergarten PE Program in Ethan, South Dakota and Gertie Belle Rogers in Mitchell, prior. Alan has seen firsthand how learning to ride a bike can impact children and is excited to cheer on Hanson Elementary School!
"Jennifer and I were blessed to be able to sponsor Gertie Belle Rogers in Mitchell. This inspired Klock Werks and we were able to fund the other two public schools as well. With the awareness that was raised during this campaign, we then were able to fund the two private school sin Mitchell with generous gifts from community members," says Alan. "This led us to Ethan, and by joining forces with the American Legion, Sons of the American Legion, and Klock Werks, we were able to reach that goal as well."
"We look forward to raising money for your
school as well, who would like to be next?"
