Casey Bike Club Applying for a Grant

Date: Friday, September 18, 2009

Hello. The Casey Bike Club is applying for a $2,500 grant from the Responsible Sports Foundation. What we need to do is have everybody we know read some information about coaching/parenting a student athlete and then take a brief and relatively self-evident quiz. Each time someone takes the quiz after identifying with Casey, we'll get points towards our grant. There are 20 $2500 grants available. I guess the group who has the most certifications receives the grant.

The quiz is not especially pertinent to Bike Club but the money would really help us meet our goal of providing ongoing cycling programming for all our students, regardless of whether they own bikes or have money to pay for velodrome fees.

Here's the link to responsible sports...

Where it says "Register Your Organization" select Boulder, Colorado. Then select Casey Middle School from the list and then choose either the parent's quiz or the coach's quiz. Once you have completed the quiz you submit it. They make you re-do any wrong answers. Then you get a verification email that you have to respond to in order for Casey to get credit. It's a lot of hoops to jump through but it's the easiest fundraising we'll ever do!

Thanks so much for your help,

Catherine Powers
