The Ride to End Obesity tour continued yesterday with our team’s visit to Mesa Verde Middle School.
We had great participation during our interactive classroom presentation on nutrition, the importance of exercise, the components of BMX racing and bike and street safety. We followed the in-class portion with over an hour of on-bike time where the kids put their helmets on and took off, as they learned riding and turning techniques and had an opportunity to race one another. We had a special needs young man join us and he raised all of our spirits with his smile, as he took his turn.
We’re really excited about the number of kids we’ve helped and the number we have encouraged to make heather life choices. Stay-tuned for more school dates and districts to be announced, as our expansion is well underway.
Special thanks to our major sponsors; Chase, Wal*Mart & Barona Resort & Casino along with: Stay Strong, Goliath Financial, Vee Tire Co, Answer Racing, Shimano, ODI, Kicker, KMC, Stealth. #bmxinschools #ridetoendobesity
