Indianapolis, IN ─ August 18, 2016 ─ Youth fitness nonprofit Nine13sports announced that Peloton Wealth Strategists, an Indianapolis-based investment management company, has extended their corporate partnership of Kids Riding Bikes programs for a second year.
For the next 12 months, Nine13 and Peloton will continue to work together to increase the reach of the nonprofit’s signature programs as the organization continues to grow at a fast pace and is focusing on serving more youth in more schools. There’s something in this partnership for adults, too: Nine13 will work with Peloton Wealth Strategists to provide opportunities to educate consumers about the personal, financial, and communal benefits of charitable giving through organized events throughout the year.
This partnership of physical and financial health initiatives allows both Nine13 and Peloton to practice their missions of helping people thrive in Central Indiana. In the last year, Kids Riding Bikes has brought the health and self-confidence benefits of basic bicycle programming to more than 7,500 Central Indiana youth in school districts across Marion, Hendricks, Morgan, and Shelby counties.
“Having Peloton on board as a partner not only supports our growth in Central Indiana, it also brings a great example of what happens when two organizations build a meaningful relationship for the greater good of the community,” said Tom Hanley, executive director of Nine13sports. “The relationship seemed like such a natural and organic fit — they’ve built their brand to include the bicycle — but we have really bonded over our feeling of mutual duty to improve the lives of others in Indianapolis through positive engagement of physical activity.”
“We really enjoyed partnering with Nine13sports and watching them grow and strive for new heights,” said Matt Bradley, managing partner at Peloton. “By extending Peloton’s corporate support for a second year, we continue to champion their work within the community. We can’t think of a better, more tangible way to give back to our community than by supporting Nine 13’s Kids Riding Bikes initiative.”
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.

About Peloton Wealth Strategists
Peloton is an independent, research-focused fee only investment advisor. We manage customized portfolios for private households and institutional clients. In bike racing, a peloton is a group of cyclists riding in a tight formation to “draft” from each other. Organized pelotons move very efficiently and can maintain much higher speeds than a lone cyclist can achieve. Pelotons are fluid, dynamic, and beautiful in action but require a tremendous amount of coordination, communication, and trust. We manage money by combining individual securities that work together as a structured portfolio, much like a peloton. The result is a powerful, efficient, integrated solution – one that moves clients toward their goals.
