Your chance to become an Everyday Hero!
How would you like to help turn this?
There's no place on campus for the after-school mountain bike clubs at Mountain View Preparatory (MVP) School in Cottonwood to ride, so the school buses coaches, students, bikes and gear to Dead Horse State Park and back, losing 25% of club time in transit.
The Cottonwood-Oak Creek School District has committed a large land parcel it owns at MVP to create a bike skills park on campus.
MVP students have a varied demographic with a wide range of socioeconomic levels along with a multicultural climate, large attendance boundary, and many students from single parent households or not residing with their biological parents.
Verde Valley Wheel Fun (FUN) has received a grant for preliminary design documents to create this bike skills park at MVP and now's your chance to become an EveryDay Hero and help FUN break ground later this year. This bike skills park will be built "by students for students" as students and equipment from the local vo-tech school, the Valley Academy for Career Technical Education, will be performing the build under supervision by a professional trail building association member firm.
And, until August 7th, your contributions will be matched $ for $ by FUN and set the stage to be doubled again through an Outride Fund Matching Grant!
