Relationship With Nine13sports:
Our relationship with the Boys & Girls Club of Indianapolis migrated during May 2012 when we partnered with the fellow non-profit to bring Kids Riding Bikes® at two of their locations, Wheeler-Dowe & Keenan-Stahl, for their summer programming. From there on, our partnership has continued to blossom and thrive as we’ve continued to bring our bicycle stimulators to several other locations for their summer programming, including LeGore and Francis Bellamy School 102. These summer programs have provided us the opportunity to make a lasting and positive impact on hundreds of Central Indiana youth throughout the years.
We’ve had a lot of great times getting kids riding bikes at the Boys & Girls Club of Indianapolis!
This summer, we’re excited to bring Kids Riding Bikes to two new Boys & Girls Club units, the Lilly Boys & Girls Club and the Finish Line Boys & Girls Club. In addition to programming at these locations, we’ll be delivering our summer programming to the Keenan-Stahl and Wheeler-Dowe units. The chance to share our passion and energy for health and fitness to an organization as storied and distinguished like the Boys & Girls Club reinforces the significance of our positive influence in the city of Indianapolis. Thank you to the Boys & Girls Club for everything that you do for us here at Nine13sports!
