We’re already mid-season on our Ride to End Obesity after school program tour. It’s great to see so many new faces with excitement to get on bikes. We continue to expand to serve more young people in San Diego. Next up, we will be serving children from military households with this positive message and programming through the Toby Wells YMCA.

Ride To End Obesity After School program edit with Justin Kosman filmed last week during one of our school visits. Team USA BMX Director, Jamie Staff, joined us along with our US Junior Development Team riders, Kamren Larsen, Colin Whittington and Noah Ramos. The goal is to share the message of leading a healthy life, being a hero against bullying with an introduction to BMX. For more information please visit our website, ridetoendobesity.com.
This week marked the 4th year of our Ride To End Obesity School program in San Diego kicking the season off at Meadowbrook Middle School.
We were excited to invite Team USA Director of BMX and Olympic Gold Medalist, Jamie Staff, to head up the presentation on eating well, staying active, the fundamentals of BMX and what it takes to be a BMX athlete. We also welcomed US Junior Development Team rider Colin Whittington, as he shared his journey and what it takes to be a BMX athlete. Big thanks to Haro for being our Title sponsor of Ride to End Obesity this year.

Ride to End Obesity – Year #3 is in full swing with a few additions. Dr. Jason Richardson (PhD Psychology) has joined the team and leads an interactive discussion on healthful living, avoiding destructive decisions, and understanding our belief system to unlock the power within. Our on-bike portion includes bike and street safety, the importance of protective gear, and includes riding games and mini competitions. We conclude each session with giveaways from our team’s sponsors.
