Global Primary Academy welcomes Gov. Jared Polis and All Kids Bike

Gov. Jared Polis visited Global Primary Academy this morning to support the launch of the All Kids Bike program in Mapleton Public Schools!

The mission of All Kids Bike is to teach every child in America how to ride a bike in kindergarten PE class. All Kids Bike donated 24 Strider bikes to GPA, thanks in part to generous support from the BNSF Railway Foundation and HDR Corporation.

Gov. Polis, along with representatives from BNSF Railway Foundation and HDR Corporation surprised GPA kindergartners with the Strider bikes, then helped them ‘gear up’ for a good time by assisting with their bike helmets and helping them learn to use the balance bikes.

The Mapleton Education Foundation is working to extend this program to all Mapleton kindergarten classrooms to ensure all students have the opportunity to learn how to ride a bike.
