TurningWheels For Kids
TurningWheels For Kids
By providing children with brand new, sparkly bikes TurningWheels For Kids hopes to encourage life long habits of exercise and outdoor activity. Each year we work diligently to collect funds, purchase and assemble bikes and then distribute them to worthy, established children’s charities for their holiday giving programs.
In 2003, Susan Runsvold set out to ensure that no child would have to experience a Christmas without any cool and exciting gifts, an experience that she feared herself when she was young. Since then, her vision has expanded, as she discovered that bicycles–one of the coolest gifts a child can receive for Christmas–can have a more profound impact on children’s lives than she first imagined.
Today, TurningWheels For Kids distributes bikes not only at the holiday but also year round through a number of partnerships focused on preventing childhood obesity and supporting low-income families.
TurningWheels For Kids has partnered with the Pediatric Healthy Lifestyle Center of the Valley, part of the Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and Bay Area Women’s Sport’s Initiative (BAWSI), to encourage outdoor activity—like riding a bike to school or to hang out with friends—as a way to improve children’s health and well-being.
