What is your cause and how will it make the world kinder?
The mission of the DeNito’s Ride for Kids, Inc. charity is focused directly on kids in the community that are unable to ride a standard bicycle due to mental or physical disabilities. We believe that every child should enjoy the same opportunity to get out and ride bikes. We work with a manufacturer in the USA to offer safe, stable and stylish choices for kids with lower levels of ability, providing them a new form of mobility, exercise, therapy and most importantly, the joy of cycling. We believe that this opportunity to donate time, in the sense of volunteers at our event and monies donated from corporations and other people interested in our events would make the world kinder.
How will you use the $10k?
We plan to purchase at least 6 more bikes with the $10,000 to be custom made for the specific disability of each child we are donating the bicycle to.
What impact do you hope to make?
We hope that every disabled child that receives a bicycle will feel a sense of normalcy and get to experience the joys of riding a bicycle while at the same time benefitting from the physical and emotional therapy being provided.
