EVENT DATE: Sep 17, 2016
When youth in our communities don't grow up with proper nourishment and lack the accurate knowledge to take care of themselves physically and mentally- how can we expect them to learn in the classroom, interact effectively with the rest of the community, and become contributing members of society?
Action for Healthy Kids has created a national movement focused on securing our future by investing in our most precious asset- our youth.
Action for Healthy Kids is a nationwide grassroots network mobilizing school professionals, families and communities to take actions that improve school-based foods, nutrition education, physical education and physical activity for all students. They provide full support to schools, administrators and parents to create healthy school environments where children thrive.
Join a community of health conscious riders from all walks of life to push your body and mind for a cause dear to our future.
Your participation will help to fund New York state schools and 130,000 additional U.S. schools in providing healthy foods, quality health and physical education, and comprehensive physical activity for 55 million students by 2030.
Whether you ride, volunteer or donate, the funds raised by participants will go toward programming meant to get kids moving in healthy directions!
Select from 50k (31 mi) and 100k (62 mi) routes. Along the way you'll ride through historically beautiful areas of Brooklyn and Queens. Witness first-hand amazing parts of these boroughs you never knew existed before! Ride along waterfronts, discover new neighborhoods, enjoy state parks at complimentary hydration stations, and take in spectacular bridge views along the East River, Jamaica Bay Greenways, and more! During the ride you will be completely supported by experienced marshals and mechanics to assist you whenever you need.
Continue the revelry of your goal completion at The Finale Festival in Brooklyn with complimentary music, food, drinks, yoga and bike valet! Stretch your muscles to the sounds of our amazing DJ and enjoy healthy after ride treats.
We can't wait to shape the future with you.
One pedal at a time.
