As we get geared up (pun intended) to start 2013 programming at the Bethel Neighborhood Center, Rosedale Middle School, Mission Adelante and Grandview Park Presbyterian, we need your help to sponsor our students! Please check out our donations page and help us bring cycling to Kansas City kids! It only costs about $30 to bring leadership opportunities, healthy lifestyles and, of course a bike to each student.
