As we look forward to 2014 we are very excited about not only the potential types of programming We feel like we can do but also by the number of kids we have the opportunity to impact.
We feel that Seacoast Velokids has the momentum to go from one elementary school program to four or even five this spring.
It is our ambition to take our Take a Kid Mountain Biking Day event and conduct it in both spring and fall.
We want to add a summer program not only for kids moving to the next level of thee cycling but also a program to teach adults who want to ride with their VeloKids.
We feel we can take our Middle School program from one to three or four schools and even look at a potential first time high school program.
Goals and ambitions are great but it will take not only funding but a lot of hard work. This year we have matured from and organization of one or two dedicated individuals to a steering and organizational committee of ten talented and diverse individuals. Already we have had a very busy two months of planning as a committee.
We are also looking to improve our performance in not only the funds we raise but in how resourcefully we use those funds. For instance in 2014 we plan to not only acquire additional bikes for our school programs but also an enclosed trailer. This trailer will allow us to move the bikes from school to school getting more from out current and future investments and it solves a long term storage problem.
This year we are also planning our first annual fundraising and awareness event. With this event we hope to bring on more sponsors and increase the donations through increased awareness about or programming and community impact.
With our ambitions plans for 2014 there will be new and unforeseen challenges for certain. But just as last year we will meet them with the same enthusiasm and dedication. In short...Bring It On.
