Every year, Spokesongs has chosen an organization or cause that we believe in and we've made it our goal to raise awareness of that cause through our tour. In year one we helped kick off the "One Mile Challenge" campaign in Harrisonburg, VA. Last year we raised money for the blossoming Friendly City Food Coop (www.friendlycityfoodcoop.com) toward their goal of opening a locally grown, community owned grocery store.
This year The Steel Wheels hope to introduce you to an amazing organization called Lose The Training Wheels (www.losethetrainingwheels.org). The mission of Lose The Training Wheels™ is to teach individuals with disabilities to ride a conventional two wheel bicycle and become lifelong independent riders. This achievement, in turn, creates a gateway of opportunity, helping them gain assurance and self-reliance in many other aspects of their lives.
There is no other program I can think of that we would love to support. LTTW sponsors camps all over the country and are empowering kids and their families through cycling. Using their uniquely designed technology and many dedicated volunteers, Lose The Training Wheels changes lives with every camp and every opportunity. Please consider giving to this great cause or check out the website to contact them about bringing a camp to your community.
