Victor Bike Park Needs your help!

Now that we have had our Grand Opening celebration, we sat down and did a bit of accounting to see where we stand. As you know, Victor Velo the non-profit organization that built the Bike Park. No City money was used for this project. However, now that the dust has settled, we need to do a bit more fundraising to cover the expenses of the project.

It total we have raised $5500 but have budget shortfall of $3500.

There is a beautiful new sponsor board at the park for any person or organization who donates more than $500.

But, we have also had a handful of $250 donations from avid users. Even small donations go a long way. I hope you can support this project too so we can start planning phase 2 - Wooden Skills features!

Ride On!

Grand Opening Celebration Sat Aug 22nd

A great letter from a parent

"The girls (Mariela and Anneli) have been RIPPING UP the bike park and Willis went with us one day and was inspired to ride his two-wheeler for the very first time! I had tears in my eyes watching M and Anneli- they truly have never given it a thought that there are things that girls can't/shouldn't do. They would zip right up and go right in front of the older boys standing there ho-ing and humming about what they were gonna do. It's a really special place. Thanks to all involved. Hope it makes you feel better about all the work you have been doing. xo. Sue"
