Cycle for a Cause: The Dake Foundation for Children
Please join me in supporting this cause by signing-up for class and making a donation that you're comfortable with. (Sunday, December 6)
The Dake Foundation for Children is a locally based non-profit organization that started in 2009. Our mission is simple; to provide children with disabilities the tools they need to become as independent as possible while maximizing fun. We really help children receive equipment that insurance companies do not cover that allow for participation in the community with family and friends.
One of our most popular equipment grants are adaptive bikes. Every year we hold a bike race at the Saratoga YMCA with participants that have received their adaptive bikes. Along side the kids biking around the track, others participates in a 60 minute ride on their spin bikes to raise money for the foundation. Due to COVID-19, we were unable to hold the bike race this year. Instead, we are thrilled to be able to be part of a virtual spin class. It is a privilege for those of us who can spin on behalf of the children who can’t and raise money in order to provide local children adaptive bikes that give them the freedom and fun that we feel every time we ride. 100% of the donations raised go directly to the Dake Foundation for Children. And, it supports all local children and families.
