15th Annual Growing Kids School Trike-A-Thon

11 April 2018   Sgt. Jason Kaufman

Kids on trikes learned bicycle safety rules and a few 'rules of the road.'

On Friday, April 6th, 2018 between 9:00 A.M. to 11:00 A.M., Lifepointe Church in conjunction with Growing Kids Preschool hosted their 15th Annual Trike-a-thon fund raiser event at 10100 State Route 69 located in Prescott Valley, Arizona.

To participate in the Trike-a-thon, preschool students obtained sponsors and brought their trikes, bikes, or scooters to the event and participated in a race for the most laps.

The mission of the Trike-a-thon was to remind the preschoolers about bicycle safety and a few, 'Rules of the road.’ Over seventy students and their families showed up to support the event.

To support the event, numerous Prescott Valley Police Officers in conjunction with the Central Arizona Fire and Medical Authority arrived at the Trike-a-thon and helped kick off the morning. Police officers and Fire Fighters brought squad cars, bicycles, fire trucks and giveaways.

We all play a role in keeping our community safe and supporting worth while events.
