Moody Early Childhood Center is seeking support for a fleet of 20 bikes, helmets, kickstands, and curriculum.
"Sometimes the simplest things in life are the most rewarding. Bikes empower kids and build self-confidence!
We would like to inspire kids to develop healthy exercise habits. Teaching a child to ride a bike is a lifelong investment. If we can get children to enjoy riding at a young age, it will become second nature and they are more likely to be more active and fit in the future. Learning to ride a bike not only helps with children’s physical heath, it also improves their mental health. It’s a way to relieve stress and relax. Biking has a positive impact on brain development and learning. Studies have shown riding a bike increasing a child’s ability to concentrate and especially benefits children who struggle with ADHD. Children love the feeling of adventure, independence and freedom. Biking will get kids outside where they can explore and grasp the beauties of nature and create a better understanding of their community.
Biking is an inclusive sport and can be shared with friends and family. Teaching a child this lifelong skill is priceless!" -- Amy Landry, Parent of MECC Student
