THANK YOU FOR YOUR GENEROUS CONTRIBUTIONS!
GOAL $7,500
RAISED 80%
BOOST PARTNER
With a mission to support recreation opportunities for youth, Columbus Youth Foundation has provided a $1,500 boost to this Better Together campaign!

Gators Bike Park was created in 2013 to get kids outside and riding bikes, away from screens. This traffic-free space in the woods introduces kids to a lifelong sport, offering  a free and exciting recreation area for all.

 

Your support is helping Gators Bike Park build a family pavilion area, welcome kiosk center, and a modular pump track--the first of its kind in Columbus! These additions will allow the park to accommodate and continue to challenge its growing ridership.

 

Thank you for helping kids build courage, gain confidence, and overcome challenges.

“Gators is not just building a bike park, they have developed a great culture! The passion, committees, summer bike team - they all point to community.”

RECIPIENT ORGANIZATION

Gators Bike Park

MISSION:

Get kids off the couch, away from screens, and outside riding bikes. 

“Gators Bike Park has been an amazing opportunity for my kids to get outside and ride their bikes. They have both overcome fears and achieved new goals as they become even better riders. They are learning life skills that will help them for the rest of their lives.”

 

—Justin Tamerlano, Coach/Board Member

“I love giving back to the community that helped me learn and grow as a person so much. There are countless ways that the Gators community positively affected me as a person, and I would hope to maybe affect someone in the same way.”

 

-Justin Reeves, rider at Gators Bike Park
