CITF also counts on partners. Many, many partners!
Our partners include principals, teachers, and parents at participating schools.
We also receive enthusiastic support from municipal governments in Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge and Woolwich Township. These partners provide a $10 subsidy for each participating student in their area.
Many local bike shops provide mechanics, materials or sponsorships for local schools.
We have an amazing team of over 50 instructors, who work with students as rules & safety experts, tire repair specialists, mechanics, rodeo wranglers, on-road instructors and learn-to-ride teachers (for those kids who have never ridden before).
Individuals and businesses contribute money and practical support to insure that our program is affordable for everyone. With the help of many, we can give refurbished bikes and new helmets to kids who cannot otherwise afford these basic tools of the trade.
List of 2018 Partners
• Sponsors Westmount Public School, participates in some bike tune-up seasons and provides space and food for CITF meetings.
• Purchased 175 locks so kids can secure new and refurbished bikes that they receive from CITF.
• Contributed $1,040 to help subsidize the price of new bikes for 51 students in our program who could not otherwise get a bike. In 2017 Morell Kelly helped us purchase helmets to give to participants who could not afford a helmet.
