It's Time for Earn-a-Bike! 

We are very excited to get back to working on bikes with kids at our growing number of sites. We have added West Middle School to our list of program sites, as well as a new staff person, Kelly McCollum. This means we are getting more bikes to more kids each semester... Woohoo! If you would like to help us continue to expand our reach, we always need volunteers and we love donations.

It's great to teach an after-school program that is based around being active. My experience teaching material that required students to sit down and follow instructions, after a full day of doing this at school, was quite challenging. It goes against the nature of being a kid. It is awesome to see kids problem solve, knowing that their work will get them somewhere, literally!

I am one of the Bike Club Coordinators at FreeWheels for Kids and I joined the team last Fall. I am going to be the voice of the newsletter and social media presence for now. Nice to meet you!

Meet Kelly!

We welcome Kelly McCollum to our team at FreeWheels for Kids. She will be the Bike Club Coordinator at the Boy's & Girls Club and West Middle School. 
Last call for volunteers!

We would love for you to join us this semester, helping kids fix up bikes and going on rides.
If you are interested please contact us at volunteer@freewheelskc.org.
Have you checked out our new website?

You should! We've consolidated all our key information into a more accessible site. There are also tons of pictures of our awesome students and volunteers. Let us know what you think!
