Bike to the Beach is proud to present our new partner, KEEN Greater DC (Kids Enjoy Exercise Now) for our Bike to the Beach DC ride!
Kids Enjoy Exercise Now (KEEN) Greater DC is a non-profit volunteer-led organization that provides one to one exercise and recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities. This program is free, at no cost to the parents and caregivers. The vision is to foster confidence, self-esteem , and community inclusion for individuals with a disability and provide families a supportive network.
KEEN stands out in their service by accepting every child regardless of his/her ability or disability and is run and managed by committed community volunteers.While KEEN accepts all young people with developmental and physical disabilities, the most prevalent disability among the youth in the program is autism.
Bike riding is a favorite activity to several of the students and because of this KEEN will be riding the “distance” for their students to raise funds for autism and KEEN programs! Fundraising efforts for Bike to the Beach DC & MD will go towards further supporting KEEN and their fitness programs.
