The Stevie Smith Legacy Foundation was put together to bring Steve's plans and dreams to life. Steve often spoke of building a "dirt jump" park where kids and youth could build on their bike skills. He wanted to help coach and guide those who, like him, were passionate about bikes.
The Legacy Foundation is involved in helping youth in a number of different ways. Between building the bike park, sponsoring youth, and partnering with other groups, the foundation is very active.
The foundation's greatest achievement, so far, was the building of the Stevie Smith Bike Park... with the additional support from the City of Nanaimo, many company sponsors, and friends & family.
Also, every year at Crankworx, the foundation chooses a junior rider to sponsor. We give financial help to give the youth an opportunity to compete at a World Cup level. At this time, we have 3 young riders who we give support to.
