ADVENTURE MEDICAL KITS PARTNERS WITH US ON INSTAGRAM

We love it when our partners want to join forces in different ways and next week we will partner with Adventure Medical Kits (AMK) for the first time on social media with a joint contest on Instagram.

Beginning next Wednesday, August 28, we will feature a giveaway promotion in conjunction with AMK which

will help promote Trips for Kids to Adventure Medical Kit's followers AND in return we will share this blog post with our followers which focuses on our relationship with Adventure Medical Kits.

We held a similar contest in June with ESI Grips which increased traffic to our website and increased our following on both Facebook and Instagram.

Make sure to check-in to our Instagram accounts (@tripsforkidsnational and @adventuremedicalkits) on August 28 to view the contest.

 

GRIFFIN BIKE PARK RECENTLY FEATURED IN NEWS

Hello Griffin Park riders!

Earlier this month, Trips for Kids Griffin Bike Park's fiscal sponsor, Griffin Bike Park, was recently in the news for hosting their second annual dual slalom race for kids of ALL ages.

Check-out the video and article about the event HERE.

Trips for Kids Griffin Park is located in Terre Haute, Indiana.

 

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY WILDWOOD

Participants from Wildwood take a moment to pose for a photo.

Established in August of 2014, Trips for Kids Wildwood located in Norman, Oklahoma celebrates their five year anniversary this month.

Led by their chapter director, Richard Gray, and supported by his small, but mighty team of volunteers, the Wildwood chapter makes a mighty impact in their community by operating both Discovery Trail and Adventure Club Rides.

When asked what he enjoys most about being a chapter director, Richard replied, “Observing the positive affect that a structured cycling program has on our participating youth. The physical improvement one can observe is dramatic, and more importantly the spirit of cooperation that the program fosters builds character in our participants. The tools we provide plant seeds that will have a lifelong positive impact.”

Gray continues, “Our youth are the destiny of our great nation. Involvement in the lives of the younger generation is a way to sow hope for the future. Each and every kid needs to be part of a group that has a greater vision of their own capability. Trips for Kids does this by being one of many excellent programs that positively impact the character of all those who are involved.”  

Trips for Kids Wildwood is sponsored by Wildwood Church. Bike on Wildwood!
