What Our Charitable Partners Say

Nathan Smurdon, Chief Partnerships & Strategy Officer

Our partnership with Indianapolis Indians Charities has allowed us to increase the amount of youth education programming we provide to two schools in the Near Northwest neighborhoods. Because of this grant, every student at these schools have participated in our Kids Riding Bikes program during their PE class and a select number of students have completed our Kids Building Bikes program – building skills and earning a brand-new bike for themselves!
