HAYWARD NON-PROFIT SEEKS APPROVAL FROM SCHOOL BOARD TO BUILD BMX TRACK FOR KIDS AND A HAND CYCLING TRACK FOR CHILDREN & ADULTS LIVING IN WHEELCHAIRS
Hayward, CA - Please support Hayward’s Life Goes on Foundation (LGO) on Tuesday, August 4th, at 7:30pm at 15510 Usher St, San Lorenzo, CA 94580 while the non-profit attends San Lorenzo’s School Board meeting to seek approval for an afternoon program designed to benefit children and those living in wheelchairs.
LGO needs citizen support to encourage the school board to pass the measure for LGO to begin staffing and operating an after school program which will offer free use of a both a BMX track for kids & a Adaptive hand cycle program for the disabled members of the community.
The concept has already been passed and supported through H.A.R.D (Hayward Area Recreation Department). The school board’s approval is the final piece of the approval process to initiate the program. LGO estimates hundreds of children and adults will benefit from its proposed initiative.
“It is crucial that people in wheel chairs just like myself, have an opportunity to enjoy outdoor recreational activities such as Adaptive hand cycling”, said Arthur Renowitzky, founder of Life Goes on Foundation. “This proposed after school program of a BMX bike track combined with adaptive hand cycling tracks will provide able & disabled people of Hayward a great opportunity to get outside and enjoy fun & exercise,” added Renowitzky. “I am hopeful the community & local media will attend the board meeting and show their support along side with LGO and H.A.R.D for this exciting program.”
