As a new board member of the Aboriginal Youth Mountain Bike Program, I am pleased to announce we are running a crowd source fund-raising campaign
. The Aboriginal Youth Mountain Biking Program is a group of mountain bike riders, coaches and community leaders who wish to support and encourage Aboriginal youth and communities to participate and excel in the sport of mountain biking. AYMBP founder, Patrick Lucas
, states: "Mountain biking has enjoyed remarkable growth over the past several decades and BC is known around the world for its substantial trail networks, skills parks and events and festivals. The Aboriginal Youth Mountain Biking Program is committed to supporting and encouraging youth and First Nation communities to get outdoors, reconnect with nature and live healthier active lives. All funds raised will support our programming with First Nation communities around the province supporting youth to get out doors and live healthy active lives. Your donation will go towards purchasing safety equipment and helping us to facilitate riding clinics in rural communities building leadership, team work, self-esteem and connections to nature for Aboriginal youth. Please donate today!
If you donate more than $50 we'll provide you with one of our t-shirts with our logo designed by Coast Salish Artist, Mark Gauti. You can donate at our Indiegogo campaign page
. Please be sure to share our campaign on your Facebook page and with your social networks. Help us reach our goal and support healthy, active living in First Nation communities. You can also 'like' and 'share' our Facebook page
