The NASCAR Foundation and All Kids Bike are teaming up to get more kids on bikes with an exclusive motorcycle giveaway; a 2021 Harley-Davidson Road Glide Special customized by NASCAR Legend Rusty Wallace and his youngest son, Stephen Wallace, of Southern Country Customs or $25,000 cash prize! All proceeds will go towards teaching kids how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class.
All Kids Bike will be at Teddy Morse’s Daytona Harley-Davidson & Destination Daytona every day during Bike Week from 10 am to 6 pm where they will be showing off this one-of-a-kind Harley-Davidson and raising awareness to influence our next generation of riders. Stop by the booth inside the Pavilion for your chance to win! Tickets are just $10 each, and every ticket sold teaches 1 kid how to ride a bike.
All Kids Bike is a national program led by the Strider Education Foundation, a non-profit organization who is on a mission to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class, and the NASCAR Foundation have partnered to place the All Kids Bike kindergarten PE learn-to-ride programs into 50 schools.
“The NASCAR Foundation is excited to collaborate for the first time with All Kids Bike,” said The NASCAR Foundation Chairman, Mike Helton. “Joining forces with programs that have core values similar with our own is invaluable. It will be an incredible opportunity to give back.”
The All Kids Bike Kindergarten Learn-to-Ride Program is a 24-fleet of bikes, pedal conversion kits, fully adjustable helmets, one teacher instruction bike and certified curriculum teacher training, which is everything needed to teach kids how to progress from balance to riding a bike in 8 lessons.
Lisa Weyer, Executive Director of the Strider Education Foundation explains, “The ability to ride a bike develops physical and mental well-being and instills confidence which can lead to better focus in the classroom. Kindergarten is the perfect age to teach kids to ride a bike focusing on gross motor skills, balance, and coordination. By teaching bike riding at the entry level in a public school system, we are providing the knowledge and a positive foundation of a lifelong skill. And we are leaving a legacy for future riders on two wheels.”
Through its collaboration with The NASCAR Foundation, the program will teach approximately 3,750 kindergarten students how to ride a bike on an annual basis. With the equipment lifespan of 7-10 years, this will impact up to 37,500 kiddos!
