Sweetlines mountain bike coaching and events organization has launched a fundraising campaign to help make the sport more inclusive. Please read and share the official press release.
“We continue to be humbled by the lack of diversity in our sport and want to do our part to bring more children of color into mountain biking. We want to level the playing field of entry into mountain biking and to the outdoors while we share our excitement with children of all ages, abilities, and backgrounds. While this sport and camps can be expensive, it is our mission to introduce some equity through these scholarships so that we are more truly and meaningfully inclusive.” – Kat Sweet, Founder and Director of Sweetlines
The organization is collecting donations to send 10 children of color to its mountain bike summer camps at Duthie Mountain Bike Park in Issaquah, Washington. Scholarships will include camp tuition, bike demo, protective gear (helmet, gloves, and pads), transportation, and meals. Every $10 counts! Please consider donating below.
