SPOKEn up… Let’s get moving!

We’ve SPOKEn up in support of children in our community! Consider all the priceless benefits a child can receive from one magical gift – a BIKE! A bike might seem to some like pure, simple fun, but in fact it’s an investment in physical and mental health, independence, access to extracurricular activities, and cognitive development. Together we can create a path that fosters emotional and physical growth for our next generation.

We know that one of the most effective ways to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression is to… GET MOVING! Extensive research suggests positive results regarding the indisputable impact of exercise on reducing mental health issues. Exercise changes brain activity in countless ways – it releases positive chemicals that improve energy and mood, promote neural growth, replace isolation with exposure, and interrupt negative thinking patterns.

It’s our mission to help deserving children move towards their full potential. LET’S GO!!!!
