Bikes for Kids Utah Charity Profile

Bikes for Kids Utah, a non-profit organization, was formed in 2006 to provide disadvantaged children with free bicycles on an annual basis. These bikes are not only an inexpensive and fun way to get to school, but they are a great tool to teach positive habits, responsibility and safety through exercise.

The main focus of the organization is to provide disadvantaged children with a positive education and effective life-skills learned through owning and riding a bicycle. To do so they are instructed in bicycle safety, the importance of obeying traffic signals, and wearing helmets. They are also encouraged and taught the importance of regular exercise and how riding a bicycle can provide that. A bicycle also offers them an alternative means of transportation which can help them feel more confidant and self-reliant.

The pre-selected group of children are generally from the Boys & Girls Clubs in the Salt Lake Valley, the Guadalupe Schools, and Rose Park Elementary School. If applicable, excess monetary proceeds raised go to the Guadalupe School, Donated Dental, and Murray Rotary Foundation to help with bicycle lane improvements. Any unclaimed bikes are donated to various local children's charities.
