Thank you to everyone who came and supported West Town Bikes in celebrating 14 years of educating our local youth and fostering Chicago's bicycling community. Together we raised over $30,000 to support youth and community programs provided by WTB in Chicago!
This year, we set some pretty big records:
- 365 youth, both girls and boys, have participated actively in Girls Bike Club, Bike Club, and other after school programs.
- 190 young people participated in and graduated from our workforce development and community leadership programs.
- These youth and young people have given back to West Town Bikes by raising over $15,000 from entrepreneurial projects and other fundraising.
- 181 young adults have ultimately found ongoing employment after participating in our workforce development and community leadership programs.
Thank you to Revolution Brewing for hosting as well as all of the sponsors and supporters who help make it a fantastic evening!
