Bikes For All: The Amigos Crush Giving Tuesday

It was a big day for the Amigos program yesterday. We met our $1,000 Giving Tuesday goal by 10am and then crushed our $2,000 stretch goal later at The Little Fleet dance party. Thanks to 36 awesome people, we raised $2,250 in all.

$2,000 of this will be matched dollar for dollar by Teter Orthotics & Prosthetics, 4Front Credit Union and the Down Syndrome Association of Northwest Michigan for a total of $4,250. Amazing.

This year’s Giving Tuesday awesomeness will allow Norte to continue to build a happier, healthier, stronger communities by empowering young people – and those who love them – to be active for life. The Amigos program which teaches confidence, independence, and bike/pedestrian safety skills to young people with special needs through empowerment, education, and adventure is going to rock in 2019.

Thank you for supporting Norte’s vision of inclusion and the idea that all young people – no matter their ability – should have the opportunity to experience the joy of independent mobility that comes with riding a bicycle.

And don’t forget! My Secret Stash is selling this beautiful hand oxidized art piece by A State of Copper with 100% of sales going to the Amigos.
