East Side Riders Bike Club
The East Side Riders Bike Club (ESR) is an all-volunteer, grassroots bicycle club working to prevent youth from joining gangs and/or taking drugs, but also engage youth to enrich the community through recreational activities, Our kids are introduced to bike safety, healthy eating and active living, the importance of giving back to the community, and are able to participate in community riding events hosted by ESR.
ESR seeks to positively impact the following community needs: Inadequate Organized Recreational Outlets for local youth in the Watts area, a community that is rife with high rates of child obesity, asthma and other respiratory challenges amongst youth; lack of Safe Passage and Travel Routes: while Watts is a very small community, there are clear gang-related boundaries and territories that limit the movement of local youth based on where they reside; Lack of Resources- families lack the resources to purchase bikes, safety gear, and/or other necessary equipment.
In turn, these kids feed the homeless, clean up neighborhood parks, and are learning to solve community problems by working together!
Help us help the kids and the community.
In order to keep our program going, we need:
Air Compressor (2) 159.00 each 318.00
Park Tools Tool Sets (4) 399.99 each 1599.96
Park Tools Work Stands (4) 499.00 each 1999.96
The credit for starting this campaign goes to DH STUDENT Xavier Pineda. We are just the cheerleaders. Our students really care about our communities.
