Van Ness Elementary is seeking support for a fleet of 30 bikes, helmets, kickstands and curriculum. Our organization was elated to hear about the opportunity to provide balance bikes and curriculum support for our kindergarten students. School budgets are often limited and this in-kind award will provide our students with quality equipment that we would not be able to afford otherwise. Being a part of this program would enhance our school’s physical education program by providing students with an early introduction to cycling. Exposing our younger population of students to cycling will provide them to access a lifelong physical skill that will help them stay active throughout their entire lives. Thank you for creating an opportunity for inner city youth that will impact their overall health tremendously! -- Darlene Ferguson, HPE/Athletic Director
