South Tahoe Boys and Girls Club Mountain Biking Program
Partners: Lake Tahoe Boys & Girls Club, TAMBA, Specialized Foundation, Sports LTD, SOS Outreach, Lake Tahoe Unified School District, Tahoe Women’s Fund
Tahoe Fund partnered with members of the South Lake Tahoe Community to bring 40 new Specialized mountain bikes and helmets, extra parts and mountain bike coaching to youth at the Lake Tahoe Boys & Girls Club and the South Lake Tahoe Middle School. The bikes have provided kids greater access to trails in Tahoe and the nearby Bijou Bike Park.
The Tahoe Fund partnered with The Specialized Foundation because of the nation-wide success the organization has had with its Riding For Focus program. Designed to help children diagnosed with ADHD concentrate at school, the Foundation’s goal is to use cycling as a tool for kids to achieve academic, health, and social successes.
The Specialized Foundation has provided training on their program to two teachers this summer at their Morgan Hill Campus.
Thanks to the Tahoe Women’s Fund and members of the community, we raised the funds needed to provide 30 bikes so that 700 kids can go through the Riding For Focus program this year.
Thank you for your efforts to get more kids on bikes!
