Youth Infusion is seeking support for a complete Kindergarten PE Program, including a fleet of 24 Strider AKB-Specific Bikes, helmets, pedal conversion kits, one Strider 20 Bike for teacher instruction, and curriculum.
Executive Director, Elika Almeida, is excited to see kids rolling in the facility soon. Elikasays: "We are seeking strider bikes for our Trips for Kids Pocono Flow biking programming. Through our transformative cycling experiences, we are promoting healthy, recreational lifestyles, safety, environmental awareness, and personal empowerment for youth of all communities, especially those most in need.
At this time, we are seeking bikes for younger children with the hope to instill the importance of being active and healthy from a young age. According to the PA Department of Health, 16.8% of children in grades K-6 are considered obese. We want to help change this by continuing to work steadily to build and grow our bike programs. We have certified and professional bike instructors who conduct our programming."
