As a non-profit organisation, WORD’s mission is to develop children and youth into passionate, lifelong mountain bikers, and encourage self-confidence, community involvement, and an adventurous spirit. We deliver organised mountain biking activities to youth (7-17 year olds) through after school programmes, holiday camps and events.
While the current programme fee for the after school programmes ($210/term) is comparable to other after school activities, we realise that this fee is far out of reach for many families. The WORD Scholarship Fund powered by Flick Electric Co aims to take away the financial barrier of participating in these fun after school programmes. We will select 25 kids to receive FREE registrations for 2 Terms (Term 4 2019 and Term 1 2020) to our after school MTB programmes!
