Donating to Bike to the Beach is a contribution to the community. Autism is the 2nd most prevalent developmental disability in the world yet receives less federal funding than any other disorder affecting children. Bike to the Beach’s fundraising efforts not only offer monetary contributions through a national partnership with Autism Speaks, but launches and supports local programs. Through local partnerships, Bike to the Beach is able to support our local community and make a difference in-and-around our own community.|
Bike to the Beach supports learn-to-bike programs with iCan Shine, workplace programs for girls with autism with Yes She Can, Inc., manufacturing education with the Spectrum Designs Foundation, education programs with the Auburn School, Nassau Suffolk Services for Autism, and the Crossroads school, and so much MORE.
I have made a personal effort to expand our bike to the beach programs and increase our impact locally through bike camps and other great partnerships.
This is the 11th Anniversary of bike to the beach and I am excited to hop on my bike to raise funds and awareness for the 10th year in a row!
We have made a huge impact, but so much more needs to be done to help the autism community.
I am biking in the Bike to the Beach for autism charity ride to make a difference in the lives of the 1 in 68 children diagnosed with autism. Autism is the 2nd most prevalent developmental disorder in the world, but receives less federal funding than any other disorder affecting children. These numbers are staggering.
Fundraising dollars for Bike to the Beach are not just direct monetary donations, but an effort by Bike to the Beach to impact the community through local programs for children, families, and those affected by autism. By supporting iCan Bike programs, summer camps, and adult learning programs, Bike to the Beach’s provides opportunities for people with autism that make a difference.
