Outride Announces Grant Recipients: Little Bellas Philadelphia￼
Little Bellas Philadelphia is excited to announce that they have been awarded a $10,000 matching grant from the Outride Foundation – that’s a grand total of $20,000 towards getting more girls on bikes in the Philadelphia region! With the support of this grant LB Philly can continue to grow their local bike fleet, store bikes in a safe location, extend financial and gear assistance to even more participants, and expand upon opportunities for our mentors.
In 2016, the Philadelphia program kicked off with 22 girls – 7 on loaner bikes and 9 utilizing financial assistance toward participation. Since then, the Philly program has run one 8-week program every summer! In 2022, to support program growth, the Philly program moved to a new format – two 5-week programs, supporting 80 girls throughout the spring and summer seasons. Seriously, how AMAZING is that?!
Join us in celebrating the Little Bellas Philly program on their incredible growth and commitment to getting more girls on bikes. #youALLrock
