Indianapolis ─ August 24, 2015 ─ Central Indiana nonprofit Nine13sports is thrilled to announce a generous contribution made by Warsaw based Lake City Heat Treating to help support Kids Riding Bikes programs in schools across Central Indiana.
“Lake City Heat Treating is excited to begin our relationship as a sponsor of Nine13sports. The health and fitness programming that they deliver is an enjoyable and interactive way for children to exercise and highlights the importance of living a healthy lifestyle,” said Julie Whiteman, Treasurer at Lake City Heat Treating. “Additionally, it gives us the opportunity to give back to the community and have a meaningful and tangible relationship with one of the fastest growing nonprofits in Central Indiana.”
Nine13sports’ nationally recognized program, Kids Riding Bikes, is designed to provide opportunity for youth across the region to learn about fitness and health through the use of stationary bicycle simulators during their physical education class. Unique in the fact that students experience this curriculum within their class, these programs serve students age seven and older.
“One area that we’ve really focused on in 2015 is building relationships that are not just Central Indiana based, but represent the entire state of Indiana,” said Tom Hanley, Executive Director at Nine13sports. “Between corporate partnerships that focus on the marketing impact within our programs and generous contributions like what we’ve received from Lake City Heat Treating, we’re able to continue to deliver our services to school districts in the region at no cost to the schools.”
Since launching in 2012, Nine13sports has grown from providing programs to 1,000 students to more than 7,500 in 2015 and with a focus to expand program services in 2016 and beyond. Additionally, Nine13sports continues to represent a new style of philanthropic engagement with a focus on working with corporations to identify opportunities that align with their corporate social responsibility goals.
Nine13sports is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that promotes health, wellness, and exercise for local youth between the ages of 8 and 18 through our Kids Riding Bikes℠ programs. We have created a unique initiative in which we have integrated the traditional bicycle with technology to provide a turnkey product for youth programs, schools, and other community organizations. In addition to individual betterment of health and fitness, our programs promote community, teamwork, and mutual respect for one another designed to foster a lasting impact.
