Another six weeks of kids’ mountain biking races and skills have come and gone.
For the past few years, multiple volunteers have made the Kamloops Bike Riders’ Association’s Kid’s League a huge success in getting children out on the trails, instilling confidence in them and letting kids ages seven to 12 know the trails in and around the city are not just for older kids, but also for them to enjoy.
The people who show up for hours on Friday nights and do weekly planning and meetings haven’t been recognized enough.
They are all modest people who have never asked parents for anything, other than to be out on the course cheering for the kids because that is what the event is all about.
We are fortunate to have this program in Kamloops, run by a group of people that is passionate about biking.
Thank you to Dirty Feet for the start/finish line arch. How special do those kids feel when they can see the finish line and push themselves a little harder?
It’s awesome seeing their faces.
Thank you to NRI for all the prizes. Thank you to all the local bike shops that were able to help out with bike maintenance and that provided two free bikes.
Thank you to Max, who is always game to take a group out on the course, and all the other leads and sweeps.
Thank you to the person who runs the KBRA Kids’s League Facebook page. Thank you Save-On-Foods and the people who cut up the snacks.
Thank you to the person who makes the medal cookies. They are priceless.
And thank you, coach Chris.
You are an inspiration to these kids. They will always remember you and your passion for kids and biking.
Thanks, also, to his wife and girls for allowing him to dedicate the time he does to the program.
Head over to the group’s Facebook page and post a comment so everyone can see how much we appreciate their volunteering.
