OUR STORY

After realizing the vast disparities among underserved youth, Marilyn Price and her team of Marin County-based bicycle enthusiasts founded the first Trips for Kids bicycling program in 1988. Since then, Trips for Kids has grown to serve thousands of children across the United States annually.

 

In 2015, Marilyn Price and Trips for Kids was honored as a CNN Hero award recipient. You can watch the CNN Hero feature here.
