2017 has been one heck of a year.
Our collective has grown, and we moved into our new home. Even though the move was tough, the Tucson community showed their support and helped us lug boxes of rusty old parts and bikes a mile up the road. Here is a list of some other rad things we were able to accomplish because of your support!
Sent over 400 new USED bikes out onto the Tucson streets!
We spent 734 HOURS helping y’all fix your sweet bikes!
We got a REALLY awesome grant to expand our Women/Trans/Femme Workshop from the ALLIANCE FUND!
Our YOUTH program has been expanding like crazy!
This year we were able to:
- continue the Ochoa afterschool bike program
- offer a FALL BICYCLE CAMP for girls
- collaborate with LSA to send 10 youth and community members to the Youth Bike Summit
- offer 16 Build A Bike Scholarships to some super cool young people!
Because we did so much this year, we are so excited to do some more AWESOME stuff in 2018.
Here are just a few of our plans:
Youth earn a bike program
Youth educational opportunities
Our building (to improve facilities)
Our WTF community engagement
Want to know how you can help make these dreams a reality?
… and if the feeling of supporting your favorite bicycle collective isn’t enough…
