On May 3, 2014, Eco Fitness and the Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry will host the 2nd annual Ride for Kids with Special Needs.
In 2013, Eco Fitness teamed up with the Down Syndrome Association of the Lowcountry and raised $20,000 to fund “I Can Bike”, a nationally recognized camp for kids with special needs.
The week -long camp, with the help of 60 local volunteers (some with Autism, Down syndrome and other gross motor delays), helped 40 kids learn to ride a bike.
Think about that.
No longer will these be stuck at home while their friends and family go bike riding! Older individuals now have a new means of local transportation. And everyone gets a much-needed boost in confidence!
Want to support this effort? Sign up for the Ride at, www.firstgiving.com/rideforkids.
Since the Ride inspires the participation of members and non-members alike, Eco Fitness will be open to the community on Ride Day. Special community yoga classes and Mini-Barre (classes) will be hosted. See www.ecofitness.com/about/ride-for-kids for details.
