About Together We Rise
Together We Rise is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of motivated young adults and former foster youth. Their vision is to improve the lives of children in foster care, who often find themselves forgotten and neglected by the public. They collaborate with individuals, companies, and community partners to bring resources to foster youth and use service-learning activities to educate volunteers on issues surrounding the foster care system.
TWR works with hundreds of foster agencies, social workers, CASA advocates, and other partners to bring our programs to foster youth across the nation. Their foundation has allowed them to provide thousands of foster youth across the country with new bicycles, college supplies, and sweet cases so that children do not have to travel from home to home with their belongings in a trash bag.

Childhood memories matter! Sponsoring a bike and helping a foster child can develop confidence, independence, and responsibility.
About Trips for Kids
Trips for Kids is the nation’s largest, oldest and most diverse youth development bicycling organization. They have enriched the lives of over 230,000 young people across North America using a simple yet powerful tool – the bicycle. Their first small chapter was started by CNN Hero Marilyn Price in 1988; they have since organically grown to a vast network of chapters offering free bicycling programs for over 20,000 youth annually throughout the US and Canada. Young people between 10-17 years old, mostly underserved, come to them from neighborhoods, schools, agencies and community organizations.
Their Discovery Trail Rides, Adventure Clubs, Earn-a-Bike Workshops, Youth@ Work Programs, Mobile Bike Clinics, ReCyclery Bike Thrift Shops and other youth development programs are helping to combat the physical inactivity crisis, promote equitable access to safe places to play and exercise, provide opportunities for physical activity in and out of school, and build self-esteem, personal skills and learn environmental stewardship, thus mentoring youth to achieve better life outcomes.
