“All Kids Bike” set up at Sturgis, raising money for kids phys-ed programs
STURGIS, S.D. — The Strider Education Foundation’s “All Kids Bike” movement aims to teach every kid in America how to ride a bike. All Kids Bike is in all fifty states and about 700 public schools.
They’ve partnered with the NASCAR Foundation and have a bike customized by Rusty Wallace and his son ready to raffle off. The proceeds from the raffle go towards getting a full kit – including 25 bikes and helmets – into schools in the Los Angeles School District.
“It’s important more than ever that we get kids riding bikes, get kids active, healthy, and leading a healthy lifestyle,” said Lisa Weyer, the executive director of the Strider Education Foundation and All Kids Bike.
Their booth will be set up in front of Rally H.Q. on Main Street in Sturgis all week from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and tickets are $100 each.
“Proceeds will go [to] getting more kids on two wheels,” Weyer said. “That’s what’s important, especially during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally to influence young riders.”
The winner of the bike will be announced during Daytona Bike Week next March.
