JOIN THE CAUSE
At Strider®, we love riding bikes, and we love inspiring kids to ride. Our mission is to build lightweight, efficient, all-terrain bikes that develop two-wheeled balance, coordination, and confidence in children.
Strider values a family-friendly workplace where the workdays fly by and the work itself feels like a grand adventure.
Strider values passionate people who believe their efforts will change the world for the better.
At Strider®, we love riding bikes, and we love inspiring kids to ride. However, we know that many kids face much greater challenges than riding a bike. To that end, we support many organizations who share the same commitment and passion for children. Below, we’ve shared with you a partial list of the organizations we’ve recently partnered with and donated to. It has been our pleasure to donate more than $400,000 in cash and bikes to charities since the company’s inception. Last year, Strider donated a total of more than $300,000 through the Rider Fund, of which more than 75% went to individuals with special needs. Through 2015, Strider expects to donate over $400,000 to non-profit organizations and is earmarking more than $200,000 to the Special Needs Community. We look forward to increasing our giving as our business continues to grow.
In 2014, Strider created the new Strider® Rider Fund to facilitate getting bikes to organizations that serve children. Our mission statement talks about why we exist, but the new Rider Fund shows how we “walk the talk.” Our Founder and CEO, Ryan McFarland, has committed one percent of Strider Sports’ gross revenue from all sales worldwide each month toward the Rider Fund. Plus, for every Strider bike registered at striderbikes.com/warranty-registration, the company will commit another $1 to the Rider Fund.
To further the reach of this program, Strider will convert every $100 in the Rider Fund to $300 worth of Strider bikes and products! The bikes and products will be donated through a grant application process. Based on prior year’s sales data, Strider is expecting to donate well over a quarter million dollars worth of Strider bikes and products to charities this year alone!
Already have a Strider bike? Already have it registered? Want to give to the Rider Fund anyway? That’s awesome, and we appreciate your generosity. While we can’t offer you a tax deduction at this time, know that you are paying it forward and helping us in our quest to create active, healthy, confident kids!
If you want to get involved with Strider, and join us on our quest to help kids of all abilities all around the world to become Riders, we want to hear from you! Whether you would like to volunteer to help us staff an event in your area or use your social media and connectedness to tell the world how one little bike company is changing people’s lives – we need you.
