The Greenstreet Bikes were given away as part of a parent-involvement incentive program and were awarded to the families of All Our Kids students who have maintained a G.P.A of 3.0 or higher and who had a parent attend all parent-teacher conferences for the school year. “It really takes the involvement of the whole family in order for these students to be truly successful and we just want to recognize these families’ efforts in helping their students to succeed,” said Penka.
Greenstreet Cycles staff personally presented the bikes to the students and their families during the All Our Kids Family Summer Picnic, which took place June 25th at the Cooper Memorial Farm Picnic Pavilion, 8602 Mormon Bridge Rd.
Greenstreet Owner, Ben Swan, hopes that in addition to rewarding academic performance and parent involvement, the donated bikes will also encourage the students and their families to live more active lifestyles. “Greenstreet is dedicated to putting everyone on a bike and making cycling safer for the Omaha community. Working with All Our Kids and outfitting deserving youth with bikes is a privilege,” Swan said.
