Kids Dojo is a 501c nonprofit on a mission is to build confidence mountain biking and to help kids be active and healthy. We believe that mountain biking builds self-esteem and enables children to experience the great outdoors while keeping their heart healthy and finding an exercise they love and can do for life. We teach basic mountain biking skills to kids 8-14 in a fun safe environment. Our non-competitive program is designed to meet each rider at their ability and enable them to flourish and become conscientious, controlled and self-confident cyclists. Our after school programs and summer camps are designed for kids who are just beginning, intermediate or advanced. We want children of all economic backgrounds to be able to experience the joy of riding and be able to participate in our programs. Kids Dojo is serving Santa Cruz, Los Gatos, Walnut Creek, Palo Alto, Scotts Valley and Aptos and we plan to continue to strive to expand our programs and offerings to the community. Our goal is to be able to provide kids in need an opportunity to ride by offering scholarships and equipment to enable them to enjoy a week of summer camp or 8 weeks after school. We rely on the generosity of individuals and businesses for support. Without the assistance of community-minded individuals just like you, we wouldn’t be able to serve those in our community.
How you can help
We ask that you make a commitment to support our mission by making a cash donation or equipment donation. This year our goal is to raise $20,000 to enable 40 kids in need to ride and enjoy one of our programs. We are also looking for sponsors to provide equipment to each child who will earn a scholarship. We hope that you will be able to make a contribution. Your generosity will make a difference in our community by allowing us to grow and expand and have healthy self-confident children.
