USS Foundation, Sports Authority Join to Surprise 100 Denver Children With Bikes and Helmets

A charity founded by loss prevention-systems integration specialist USS partners with the sporting goods retailer each year to donate youth bicycles.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. – Sports Authority partnered with USS Foundation, a nonprofit charity run by loss prevention-systems integration specialist USS, and its Adopt-a-Bike program to provide 100 outstanding students at the Richard T. Castro Elementary School in Denver with bikes and helmets on December 11.

“Sports Authority is a proud supporter of this community and believes in bettering the lives of its youth,” says Mike Foss, CEO, Sports Authority. “Our partnership with the USS Foundation and its Adopt-a-Bike program has given us a wonderful opportunity to recognize the outstanding efforts of these students.”

Helmet Heads, a Denver-based volunteer organization which has taught more than 1,500 students over the past five years about helmet safety, was on site to educate students and demonstrated what can happen if helmets aren’t worn. The 100 outstanding students were personally fitted for their helmet during the event and were able to ride their new bikes immediately.

“Sports Authority’s generous donation of bikes and helmets to the USS Foundation will help these students feel a sense of accomplishment for their good behavior,” says Adel Sayegh, founder of the USS Foundation. “The children selected by the school have outstanding records of attendance, academic effort and good behavior, and we hope this recognition will help them continue on a positive path forward.”

This is the second year Sports Authority and the USS Foundation have teamed up for the Adopt-a-Bike program. Last year, their partnership provided 100 Miami students with bikes.
