The Verde Valley Bikes for Kids was awarded a $5,000 Sports Fund of Arizona Grant. The Sports Fund of Arizona is a Colangelo Center fund established in 2016 to fund youth sports programs and organizations throughout the state with grants of up to $5,000.

The program was also competitively awarded a $5,000 Grant from the Yavapai County Chapter of the Arizona Community Foundation and a $3,000 grant from the Sedona Chapter. 


These three grants will help fund the program's expansion to two elementary schools in Cottonwood and Rimrock beginning next fall. The program currently supports bike clubs and spring rodeos at West Sedona and Cottonwood Elementary schools.

In the 2017-2018 school year, the Verde Valley Bikes-for-Kids...

  • helped create a mountain bike club at Cottonwood Elementary School,
  • provided funds in support of West Sedona Elementary School's existing mountain bike club,
  • distributed 12 new bikes to Cottonwood & Sedona students who exceeded standards for grades, attendance, comportment and citizenship,
  • distributed 40 kids helmets at the Sedona Celebration of Spring, and
  • provided a grant to the Sedona High School Mountain Bike Club's National Interscholastic Cycling Association (NICA) Team to defray coaches and students out-of-pocket expenditures at scheduled races. .
