Hillside Wins 'Riding for Focus' Grant
Hillside Middle School has been selected as one of 41 schools nationwide that are grant recipients for the 2019-2020 Riding for Focus school program. The program integrates cycling into the physical education curriculum as a means to help students achieve academic, health, and social success.
“We want to sincerely thank all schools that applied this year. We are very fortunate to welcome 41 new schools and their respective communities into The Specialized Foundation family,” said Ted Theocheung CEO, The Specialized Foundation. “The continued support from our partner schools and from our donors is what keeps this program alive. With this support, students can ride and thrive.”
In the months ahead, Hillside will gain access to the Riding for Focus program curriculum, a fleet of bikes, a starter maintenance kit, and helmets to activate the program this fall. Additionally, school champions will be attending an in-person training session hosted by The Specialized Foundation staff to ensure success as new schools integrate the program into their classrooms this fall.
