Super Bowl grant gives bikes to Crow Wing Co. kids

Super Bowl grant provides bikes for Crow Wing Co. kids

BRAINERD, Minn. - Elementary students across Crow Wing County will soon be scooting around on two wheels, thanks to a grant from the Minnesota Super Bowl Host Committee Legacy Fund.

As part of its 52 Weeks of Giving campaign leading up to the Super Bowl, the Fund gave a grant to Crow Wing Energized on Tuesday. The $50,000 grant will help to buy a fleet of 60 bikes to give to elementary schools in the county, including Brainerd and Baxter Public Schools and Garfield Elementary.

The bikes will be part of a state-required bicycle curriculum for third- and fourth-graders. The goal is to use the fleet as an educational tool, teaching kids how bicycling can be part of a fun, healthy lifestyle.
