THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS!
GOAL $3,000
RAISED 114%
MATCHING BOOST
With a mission to support recreation opportunities for youth, Columbus Youth Foundation has matched the first $1,500 raised through this Better Together campaign!

PACT (Partners Achieving Community Transformation) supports the health and success of the Near East Side community through collaboration and partnership. With a nod to some of the most important residents in this 800-acre area of Columbus, PACT is partnering with Franklinton Cycle Works to distribute 50 bicycles to children ages 5-12.

 

Families participating in this bike bonanza will pay $10 for a Trek bicycle. Each bike will be professionally refurbished by the team at Franklinton Cycle Works, and each child will receive safe bike-riding instructions, a helmet, lock, and light. Children will receive their bikes and gear at one of two fun-filled Bicycle Rodeos planned for December 15 and next spring.

 

We are Better Together!

"Friends of PACT, supporters and advocates of children and families living on the Near East Side; Thank you! Your generosity has enabled us to achieve our goal of distributing bikes to 50 Near East Side children; 25 during an event in December 2018 and another 25 in the spring of 2019!  Thank you for your ongoing support of our efforts to transform Columbus’ Near East Side."
