Sports Authority and the USS Foundation Surprise 100 Denver Children with Bikes and Helmets

Local nonprofit Helmet Heads attended event to educate children on helmet safety


Englewood CO. (December 14, 2015) – Sports Authority, one of the largest full-line sporting goods retailers in the United States and Puerto Rico, recently partnered with the USS Foundation and its Adopt-a-Bike program to provide 100 outstanding students at the Richard T. Castro Elementary School in Denver with bikes and helmets on December 11.

“Sports Authority is a proud supporter of this community and believes in bettering the lives of its children,” said Paul Gaudet, Executive Vice President of Store Operations, Sports Authority. “Our partnership with the USS Foundation and its Adopt-a-Bike program provided us the opportunity to reward 100 local children for their hard work, academic efforts and good behavior.”

“Sports Authority’s generous donation of bikes and helmets to the USS Foundation will help these students feel a sense of accomplishment for their good behavior,” said Adel Sayegh, founder of the USS Foundation. “The children selected by the school have outstanding records of attendance, academic effort and good behavior, and we hope this recognition will help them continue on a positive path forward.”

Helmet Heads, a Denver-based volunteer organization which has taught more than 1,500 students over the past five years about helmet safety, was on site to educate students and demonstrated what can happen if helmets aren’t worn. The 100 outstanding students were personally fitted for their helmet during the event and were able to ride their new bikes immediately.

This is the second year Sports Authority and the USS Foundation have teamed up for the Adopt-a-Bike program. Last year, their partnership provided 100 Miami students with bikes.
