A Reason to Ride


This year marks the 5th Annual Bike for the Kids. We were eagerly making plans for September 13 when hundreds of cyclists would ride distances ranging from 12 to 100 miles to support therapy services for children with developmental delays and disabilities.

Yet with the health concerns resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic, and the statewide restrictions on public gatherings, we have determined that we are unable to safely proceed with this event in 2020.

But that doesn't mean we're pumping the brakes...

We depend on the Bike for the Kids to fund critical therapy services - especially now. Cycling has been a key part of at-home tele-therapy programs and has helped many children stay active and stay safe. View and share cycling progress on our facebook event page.

The Jonathan Goers Bike Program and friends have generously committed funds to continue to provide adapted bikes to children with disabilities, but the children we serve still need your help

Please help us reach our $15,000 goal to support the therapies that empower children with the strength and confidence to sit, stand, walk, run or RIDE. While so much is still on hold, their milestones can't wait.

We are shifting gears. Here are 3 ways you can help:

  1. Simply give what you are able and make a donation of any size.

  2. Pledge $40 ($15 for kids) and commit to riding in the month of September. Set your own route and distance. Track your miles and post your completed map and photos to our Facebook event page. Earn a commemorative Bike for the Kids 2020 sticker and $5 off next year's registration fee!
    and/or
  3. Join a fundraising team to help celebrate a child at Easterseals, or start your own and encourage others to add their support.
