Can’d Aid volunteers to build bikes and skateboards for kids impacted by the Marshall Fire

The volunteer-led build will take place at Oskar Blues Grill & Brew on June 1, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.


What: Local volunteers with Can’d Aid will build 50 bikes and 20 skateboards to be donated to the Marshall ROC (Restoring Our Community) and Boulder County Housing & Human Services. The bikes and skateboards will go to children who were impacted by the Marshall Fires. In early 2021, the Silver Creek basketball team in Longmont raised funds to help support kids that were impacted by the Marshall Fire in December 2020, making this donation possible. . 

When: Volunteer-led Build - Thursday, June 1, 5-7 p.m.

Where: Oskar Blues Grill & Brew (303 Main St. Lyons, CO 80540) 

Media Opp: Media are invited to attend the skateboard build. Please RSVP to Diana Ralston, 970-275-5156, [email protected] 

Why: Children average seven hours of screen time per day, and only one in five gets the daily recommended amount of exercise. Through its Treads + Trails program, Can’d Aid helps combat these troubling statistics. Can’d Aid has donated more than 3,500 bikes and skateboards nationally to students in 2022. At a time when our nation’s youth are experiencing extreme levels of anxiety, depression and mental health issues, Can’d Aid’s programs provide healthy and active outlets for underserved and at-risk children across the country.
