2023 Bike the Keys Challenge
Help our Club members attend the Club every day.
Donations help support Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County transportation fund!
The Bike the Keys Challenge is an annual 200-mile charity bike ride in the Florida Keys, raising money for Boys & Girls Club of Palm Beach County. In this 4th annual charity event, we’re directly helping Club members in need get reliable transportation to and from critical after-school care. In it’s first 3 years, over $30,000 has been raised. This fundraiser started in 2020 as three cycling friends looking for a new South Florida bike ride and a way to raise money for the community during the pandemic. Now in 2023, Bike the Keys has nine riders and each is also competitively raising funds for their individual rides.
Transportation is critical to ensure that students can access the programing they need as nearly 100% of students served by the Club do not have access to transportation.
The 2023 Bike the Keys Challenge is seeking to raise money to ensure all Club members have safe and reliable transportation after school to the Club. It will eliminate the waiting list for children to attend the Club so all can have access to the Club’s life-changing programs.
Why after-school care?
Boys & Girls Clubs of Palm Beach County helps more than 10,000 children every year with award-winning programming and a mission to ensure all young people reach their full potential. The Clubs are much more than a safe and loving space for children to go after school. On staff are 110 certified teachers, art professionals, STEM experts and mental health professionals to make sure all children graduate on time and with a plan for the future.
In short, transportation is crucial in allowing members to have a safe space to be when their parents cannot be with them. Without transportation, most members would be forced to go home to an unsupervised, empty home after school. Our goal is to help these children in our community receive the Boys & Girls Club programming that they deserve so that they too can be successful.
