Strider Sports Pays It Forward with Rider Fund

Strider Sports International


Rapid City, SD  - Strider Sports International, the world's premier manufacturer and marketer of no-pedal balance bikes, is pleased to announce the creation of the Strider® Rider Fund to facilitate giving bikes to organizations that serve children.


Strider Rider Fund

 

"Our mission statement talks about why we exist, but the new Rider Fund shows how we "walk the talk", says Founder and CEO, Ryan McFarland, who has committed one percent of Strider Sports' gross revenue from all sales worldwide each month towards the Rider Fund. "Plus, for every STRIDER™ bike registered at www.StriderBikes.com/register, we will commit another $1 to the Rider Fund." 

 

To further the reach of this program, Strider Sports will convert every $100 in the Rider Fund to $300 worth of Strider bikes and products! The bikes and products will be donated through a grant application process. Based on prior year's sales data, Strider is expecting to donate more than $250,000 worth of STRIDER bikes and products to charities this year alone! Of these donations, half will be earmarked specifically to support Special Olympics chapters and the Young Athletes Programs all across the US.

 

Strider announced the Rider Fund in June at the 2014 Special Olympics USA Games, and after only 3 months has already donated over $112,000 worth of STRIDER bikes for distribution to applicants from non-profit organizations!

 

STRIDER Balance Bikes are industry-leading training bikes that help people learn to balance and ride on two wheels. There are STRIDER bike models for all ages; from 18 month old toddlers and elementary aged children to teens, adults, and even seniors, as well as for all abilities.
