On August 15, 2018, Anika Parr and Taylor Danielson will undertake a fundraising hike for the GoHawkeye Foundation youth development fund during their summer vacation in Colorado. This year’s 8.5-mile hike will begin and end in Telluride. Please consider pledging any amount you feel comfortable donating. 100% of these funds will go towards assisting kids with disabilities to experience the outdoors.

“Overall, youth are an underserved population in off-road handcycling, due largely to the lack of available equipment.” -Pat Addabbo, Oregon Adaptive Sports Program Director.

In 2017 kids off-road-handcycles were delivered to two different adaptive sports organizations. These bikes were directly funded by the GoHawkeye Foundation youth development fund.

“The best thing about providing these bikes for kids is that they were paid for by kids!  The GoHawkeye Youth Development Fund was established by 12-year-old fundraisers Anika Parr and Helena Burger who have raised $7000 during the past three summers from biking, hiking and bake sales. These girls are right on target because these adaptive organizations have a real need for this type of handcycle in kid biking programs.” Hawkeye
