RoundUp for Safe Routes to School
As an independent charity, we rely on the generous financial support from the public, the bicycle industry and We Ride Australia members, to continue to develop and deliver our programs. Your support of the Safe Routes to School program, means together we will enable our children and young people to walk, scoot and ride a bike to school and make our communities safer and healthier places for everyone.
We Ride Australia has partnered with some of our leading bike shops and retailers, to raise the resources necessary to research, plan, develop and implement a national Safe Routes to School program. Our RoundUp partners have agreed that it is important to ensure our kids become more active during their journey to and from school each day.
Our RoundUp stores are ready and able to add your donation to your next purchase and will forward it onto We Ride Australia, so we can achieve this vision together. We encourage you to show your support for them, by making your next bicycle related purchase from their store.
FAQ’s about RoundUp for Safe Schools
How does it work?
During your next visit to your local participating bike shop, you can ask for your transaction to be ’rounded up’ to the nearest dollar, or ten dollars as a donation to Safe Routes to School. As an example, your new $47.50 bike helmet, will become a $50 transaction, with a $2,50 RoundUp donation added for Safe Routes to School.
Your local participating store, will ensure your donation is passed onto We Ride Australia to contribute to the development of this important program for our kids.
