Happy Holidays from PEAC!
Some of our 2014 accomplishments include:
- Reached over 630 students in our Summer Program, Active Transportation Initiative and Private Lessons
- Launched Summer Program site in Lansing
- Purchased building to serve as the future headquarters for PEAC operations
- Embarked on 5th year of Active Transportation Programming in 3 different counties
This year, over 200 students worked toward achieving a cycling goal, in our Summer Program, and we love to share Jarrell’s success with you! Jarell is 14 years old and this was his first year participating in the Summer Program. On assessment day, he struggled with pedaling forward on the two-wheel bike. However, Jarell is a very positive and determined student, always ready to push forward and to keep trying to reach his goal of riding a two-wheeled bike. His perseverance paid off by the second week of the program! For the remainder of the summer, Jarell concentrated on bike handling and control and can now ride his bike in the community. He rides with his sister, Ariel, and uses his bike to exercise, visit friends and travel within the community. Due to his new found freedom, Leona, Jarell’s mom, says “PEAC has helped make him one of the happiest kids around!”
