Wish for Wheels targets low income, culturally diverse children k-2nd grade attending Title I schools and programs. For many of these children, a bicycle is just a dream, as we are striving to make it a reality for all of Colorado.
Wish for Wheels provides an opportunity to give kids a chance to build self esteem, and self-confidence, by learning how to ride a bike, and to get to school, so they can get an education. Our programs target childhood obesity, and providing tools for a healthy lifestyle and exercise. Wish for Wheels:
Work with area public schools to focus on the students who will benefit the most from our program.
Organize an annual bike giveaway with the financial and organizational support of community participants.
Delivers bikes to our selected schools and watch firsthand as the children’s faces light up with excitement.
