Logan's Hero Dirt Scholarship Fund
Every mountain bikers jumps at the opportunity to ride hero dirt knowing that their ride experience will be enhanced.
Many Verde Valley youth lack the opportunity to enhance their lives by extending their education past high school.
As a result, the Board of Directors of Verde Valley Wheel Fun (FUN) are thrilled to announce the creation of the Logan’s Hero Dirt Scholarship Fund. Named in honor of a 6th grader at Oak Creek School in Cornville who inspired its creation, this financial need and merit based scholarship will be available beginning in Spring 2025.
