Buffalo iCan Bike Camp in Need of Riders and Volunteers
Mar 17, 2023
Learning to ride a two-wheeled bicycle is an exciting milestone that brings fun experiences and independence. Yet, for many people with disabilities, this opportunity may never happen during their lifetime. iCan Shine is one organization working to defy those odds with their iCan Bike Program. Using adapted bicycle equipment, iCan Bike has developed instructional camps specially focused on the needs of people with disabilities—empowering thousands to ride a bike all on their own!
People Inc. is a proud supporter of iCan Bike. The Buffalo chapter is hosting a camp this summer, from Monday, June 26 through Friday, June 30, at Niagara Frontier Sports (previously BNCC), 425 Meyer Road, West Seneca, NY 14224.
Sessions are 75 minutes each day for people with disabilities, ages eight and up. The cost to attend the five-day camp is $225, or $200 if you register before Monday, May 1, 2023. Session times vary. Check out full requirements and register online.
Volunteers are also needed to encourage riders and keep them safe as they learn to ride. Interested volunteers must be at least 15 years of age, able to walk/jog behind a rider for the duration of a session with short breaks, and available to attend the camp each day during the same time slot from June 26 through June 30. Learn more and apply to become a volunteer.
