WWO ORPHAN SUPERHERO RIDERS 2018
Jennifer and Kevin Grom
Thank you for joining us on our newest adventure! We have joined the Worldwide Orphans (WWO) Superhero Riders team. WWO is a non-profit that works around the globe to transform the lives of children and families impacted by the trauma associated with poverty, conflict and disaster. WWO has sponsored us for the May 6, 2018 BikeNY TD Five Boro Bike Tour!
Imagine this: Some children are living in extreme poverty, recovering from extreme trauma, and have never in their short lives, “played”. Imagine that? Children who know not what “playtime” is. WWO strives to add a critical facet to the enrichment of these children’s lives - PLAYTIME! Not just toys - but meaningful, age-appropriate play experiences, like learning to ride a bicycle.
WWO’s signature program, Element of Play®, is a trauma-informed, researched and evidence-based program that combines play skills for children and workforce development for the adults who interact with them. Through Element of Play, adults develop an increased understanding of child development and learn specific play-based strategies and skills to support each child.
Please donate to our cause and help us bring a smile to a child whose best medicine may be a hearty laugh, a vibrant smile, or a carefree bike ride!
For five years, our fearless WWO Superhero Riders have not only biked 40 miles through the 5 boroughs of New York City, they have also raised tens of thousands of dollars for WWO and the children we serve. This year, 35 of our most enthusiastic and active supporters will be riding the 40 miles once again.
WWO's mission is to transform the lives of orphans and vulnerable children through access to medical care, education, and psychosocial support so they can become healthy, independent, and productive members of their community and the world.
