Thank you to our Smart Money Family Fun Bike Ride sponsors, partners, riders and volunteers for your support in making the bike ride event a wonderful success! Due your support we raised $14,000 to support and expand financial literacy programs.
We had a glorious day of weather for the ride. The Columbus Municipal Airport was a wonderful host! We had great feedback from riders who rode the 4 mile route and the 14 mile route. A number of adults and children told us they really enjoyed the interactive activities at the airport and along the routes. Many parents told us they plan to ride again next year and will invite family and friends to join them.
Activities at the airport included the opportunity to explore fuel efficient car provided by Bob Poynter, learning how to Save, Share and Spend with Kappa Delta Phi of IUPUC, understanding college costs with IUPUC Ambassadors. The Columbus Bicycle Coop, the Bicycle Station, Columbus Police Department and Liberty Mutual also provided interactive activities.
Activities on the route included the opportunity to meet Harriet Tubman and the cost benefits of buying generic rather than name brand labels.
The ride featured some great prizes within three age divisions. Congratulations to our three grand prize winners who each won a $100 gift card!
- Dawson Payne (age 4-8)
- Kyle Carlson (age 9-13) -
- Xavier Dulong (high school-adult)
