Bikes For Life encourages Colorado youth to devleop healthy habits and a lifelong commitment to wellness through bicycling. Bikes For Life will provide free bicycles and helmets to 1,000 qualifying children from the Boys and Girls Clubs of Metro Denver and Children's Hospital Colorado clinics.
Bikes For Life advocates for healthier kids in three ways:
-Using bikes to encourage physical activity. Bicycles will serve as an incentive to encourage increased physical activity and develop long-term lifestyle habits.
-Providing ongoing skills and education services. Bicycling safely is a priority, and participants and their families will be invited to participate in community events focused on improving skills and encouraging safe bicycling.
-Conducting research. In return for a free bicycle, participating youth commit to bicycling on a regular basis. Children's Colorado researchers will provide ongoing support and evaluation. Ultimately, researchers at Children's Colorado will be able to report on how bicycling can improve health status as a result of engaging in physical activity.
