Katonah Elementary School’s Walk for Wheels Reaches Destination!

 Thursday, June 8, was the sixth and final day that students at Katonah Elementary School (KES) used their recess for Walk for Wheels, an initiative that began in September 2016.

They ran, sang, and held hands during the final laps in their school’s year-long “walk-a-thon" —an innovative partnership with over twenty local businesses. It has achieved its goal. They have raised enough funds for World Bicycle Relief to provide twenty-two students in rural parts of Africa with bicycles.

“It’s been an awesome experience,” said Terry Costin, Assistant Principal of KES, who has walked many laps with the students. “This has been a great community initative. The entire school walked over three thousand miles to benefit people in rural Africa who use bikes for necessary basic transportation.”

Catherine Courter, a KES parent, avid cyclist, and active member of World Bicycle Relief, introduced the school’s administrators to this initiative.

“My goal with this project was to bring a global cause into our elementary school,” Catherine said.

World Bicycle Relief distributes specially designed, locally-assembled bicycles to students, healthcare workers and entrepreneurs in rural Africa to provide the mobility necessary to connect with education, healthcare, and economic opportunities.
