Details:Our nonprofit organization, Triangle Down Syndrome Network, is hosting a camp called iCan Bike. Proven methods from our nonprofit partners at iCan Shine help over 80% of our riders with Down syndrome learn this task in just five days. That means that the majority of the kids will be able to participate in family bike rides after camp!
We need volunteers to act as spotters for our event. Every rider with Down syndrome requires two volunteers to act as their spotter (we have 40 riders enrolled). Camp takes place from July 15th -19th with five, 75-minute sessions each day at the Kerr Scott Building at the Fairgrounds. Anyone willing to participate just needs to commit to 75 minutes of their time between the hours of 8am - 5pm. No experience needed! Just wear comfortable, close-toed shoes.
There is a volunteer orientation on Sunday, July 14th from 2-4pm .
Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions!
No location specified.
Rain Plan:Most of the camp happens indoors, weather should not affect us.
