Hooray! This project is fully funded

I am the Physical Education teacher for approximately 250 low income, mostly minority Brooklyn children (K-1). We have 90-95% of our children on free lunch. Most of our children have little opportunity to enjoy afterschool activities, and look forward to their gym periods for the new experiences they would not be offered elsewhere. I am in need of several large scooters for several of my first graders. They are very tall and very heavy and they don't fit on my standard sized scooters. Their self-esteem plummets when they can't participate in activities because they can't fit on the standard sized scooters the other students use. I appreciate any help you can offer.
