Shands Elementary School is seeking support for a fleet of 24 bikes, helmets, kickstands, and curriculum.
"Our students would benefit from the Kindergarten Bike Program beyond measure. Our school is a Title 1 school which means funds are limited and scarce. Our mission at Shands Elementary in PE is to provide a variety of opportunities to every child to continue being a lifelong mover. We encourage each other to be the healthiest version of ourselves. Every program we have been a part of has always been such a blessing to each of our students. Riding a bike is a lifelong skill that will make a lasting impact for years to come. Their smiles and joy will be priceless to be a part of on their journey through fitness. Bike safety, pedaling, speed, and even some tricks will be exactly what our students need to spark motivation and excitement. Thank you for this opportunity that you have given our students. I cannot wait to share this with them all." -- Michelle Washington, PE Teacher
