Our students are bright, eager kids, from a wide variety of ethnicities and socio-economic backgrounds. What they may lack in cultural experience is made up for with tenacity and inner strength of character that make each of them unique. They have goals and dreams for their futures and the perseverance needed to make those dreams into realities. Growing up in our small, rural community, most of them know more about farming, hunting, and making the most of what they have than their city cousins. Many of them also know more about living in rural poverty than most.
To promote bike safety, family fun and physical fitness, my middle school cooperative education classes are planning our 1st school-wide bike safety rodeo event. This grant will provide proper safety helmets for the kids as they participate in the events and we will give them away at the end to encourage kids to continue to ride safely.
Our rural town has very few sidewalks, forcing our kids to ride their bikes on the less safe roadways.
Providing bike safety helmets for participants during the events will introduce our bike enthusiasts to helmet safety and help ensure a fun day for all.
