Crayons to Calculators: Bike & Beer Fundraiser
This morning we served LOADS OF LOVE to all the AWESOME riders who came out to support Crayons to Calculators! To make sure they were fueled properly for their 40 mile ride (and so their stomachs could absorb the beer along the way), we loaded them up with LOVE! Crayons to Calculators ‘is a school-supply drive created to ensure that local students in Boulder, CO head back to school with the tools they need to succeed.’
“Why [they] do it: There are more than 13,000 kids in Boulder Valley and St. Vrain Valley school districts who qualify for free and reduced lunch—an indicator of poverty. The cost of basic school supplies ($50–$70 per student), presents a financial burden for many of these kids’ families. Crayons to Calculators aims to cut that cost and move one step closer to eliminating the achievement gap. Having the right school supplies is a critical first step to help a student achieve higher literacy levels, improve academic performance, and graduate. It also enables schools to operate more effectively.”
Lou the Box Guy organized the event. He was super stoked to spread the LOVE and we were thrilled to support the cause!
Huge shout out to all the riders who came out!
