BWIRC Receives 2024 Impact 100 Grant

Local philanthropic organization awards $100,000 grant 

We were thrilled to be chosen as a 2024 Impact 100 Grant Finalist, and would like to thank all those people involved in making it possible for us to initiate our Pedal It Forward! project throughout the Indian River County community.

Pedal It Forward! will expand The Bike Rehab Project by reaching more of those in need of transportation, streamlining the process, promoting bike donations, training volunteer mechanics, and growing our Community Partner network.

Surprisingly, nearly half of Indian River County residents are “transportation disadvantaged.” The gift of a simple bicycle can give 16,000 local citizens transportation independence!

You can read more about the initiative in the 2024 Grant Finalist Summary, which may be downloaded here.
