People build their moral foundations during their childhood. That's why it's so important to provide a positive influence to our youth and good moral examples. Our ministry, the Lord’s Gym, has been that positive influence for the last 26 years. We work with youth in the inner-city of the greater Cincinnati area through the popular activity of cycling. Cycling, just one of our activities, is part of our Youth Resiliency program in Price Hill. Through this program, children will learn all the mechanics of cycling including safety, maintenance, and basic skills. We want this program to build a sense of family and belonging while nurturing habits of responsibility and team work. Collectively, our combination of activities work together t help our youth become more resilient to drug addiction.

In the last year, over 30 trail bikes were donated and rehabbed by some very generous volunteers.

Now we need an enclosed trailer to store and transport them. This will allow us to be mobile, efficient, and meet the youth where they are. We would appreciate your donations to help us achieve our goal and provide a great resource for at risk children in an area that where youth have limited resources.

We are trying to raise $10,000 for a new 7x16 enclosed trailer, accessories, and 18 months of secure storage.  Any funds raised in excess of the costs will be applied toward the cycling program. Thank you in advance for your generous consideration.
