Greenlee Elementary is bringing the community together to give second graders bicycles on May 19th and we want you to be there!

Our team is inviting those in our community who are committed to making the dream of owning a bicycle a reality for children who otherwise might not own one.

Bring several people from your organization, assemble the bikes and meet your ‘customers’!

We already have 30 bicycles, helmets and locks ready to go and we need just 20 more to make sure every 2nd grader has a bicycle to ride!

Bring your team for the greatest team building event ever created.  You can either tell them what is happening or make it a surprise when they get to meet their ‘customer’.

Each assembly team is between 3-5, so if you want to bring 15 people, sponsor 3 children to receive bikes!

You just show up for the fun and we take care of everything else – the bikes, tools for assembly, mechanic inspection and any other details.  All 50 teams will build together and meet your 2nd grader together.

THIS IS WHAT OUR COMMUNITY BIKE BUILD WILL BE LIKE! SO MANY SMILING FACES!

WHY CHILDREN RIDING BIKES IS SO IMPORTANT

PERSONAL EMPOWERMENT

No one forgets the joy of receiving their first bicycle. A bicycle empowers a child, giving them their first taste of true independence, self-reliance, self-esteem, and helping build the foundation of a healthy lifestyle. Millions of children never experience these joys and freedoms – their lives are not favored by fortune or circumstance and a bicycle is a luxury their family cannot afford. Your donation will be the key to filling this gap and empowering these children with self-esteem.

Build a Bike“If I had a bike…I will be the first one to have a bike in my family. My new bike will change my life when I win it. I could leave home on it, and go to school. I could go to my cousin’s house whenever I want to. If I had a bike I would be full of joy.”

– D. Gutierrez : Age 12

CONQUER CHILDHOOD OBESITY

A child who begins riding a bike before age 12 is 65% less likely to be obese in adulthood.

Nearly 1 in 5 American 4-year olds is obese
70% of obese 10 to 13 year olds will be obese as adults
30% of boys & 40% of girls are at risk of being diagnosed with type-2 diabetes

build a bike!“If I had a bike I would be so happy. I would ride it all day. I would ride it even at night. I would take care of it with all my might. I would go every where I could go. Having a bike would help me get to school in the mornings. I would feel proud of myself if I had a bike.”

AN ENVIRONMENTAL LEGACY

Automobile CO2 emissions are a primary contributor of green house gases. A 10 mile 5 days a week round-trip commute in a small car averaging 35mpg produces nearly a ton of CO2. Biking as an alternative is a key contribution to reducing this carbon footprint.

Exposing children at an early age to bicycling as alternative transportation sets an example for them to be environmental stewards as adults.
