About Going Places
Going Places’ mission is to provide disadvantaged kids with their most basic childhood right - A right to Joy. They do that by surprising every child in the low-income, high-poverty elementary schools with a brand new, high quality, custom bike. This bike represents Joy, freedom, escape, ownership, and restored innocence in these children’s lives. By the beginning of June, Going Places will have given 2060 bikes to disadvantaged kids in 3 years' time. Going Places is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.
