Generous grants from the Sports Fund of Arizona, the Arizona Community Foundation of Yavapai County and Sedona, Wells Fargo Bank, Trek President John Burke, the Singletrack Futures Foundation and 150+ individual donations made these awards possible. The Verde Valley Bicycle Company provided the bikes to the VVCC at cost, assembled them for free, and provides discount parts and service prices to the VVCC.

Thank you supporters and congratulations students!
