Ryan Dungey Foundation Launches All Kids Bike Kindergarten PE Program at Two Nashville Elementary Schools

Nashville, T.N. – April 19, 2024 –  All Kids Bike, the national nonprofit teaching kindergarten students how to ride bikes in PE class, is activating their All Kids Bike Learn-To-Ride Kindergarten PE Program at Inglewood Elementary School and Stanford Montessori Elementary School, thanks to a generous donation from the Ryan Dungey Foundation.  

Four-time Supercross Champion, Ryan Dungey of the Ryan Dungey Foundation, along with Supercross racers who competed in the Monster Energy Supercross over the weekend, built and delivered the bikes to excited kindergarten students.  

The Ryan Dungey Foundation is dedicated to creating opportunities for the next generation of children. Our efforts are focused on supporting the fight against childhood cancer and our commitment to help children live healthy and active lifestyles. The Foundation raises valuable funds in support of St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and All Kids Bike.  

At Stanford Montessori, PE Teacher Greg Appleton believes this program will open doors to healthier lifestyles for children. “Having a set of bikes for kids to learn on is a tremendous opportunity for Stanford.  We are so grateful for the Ryan Dungey Foundation.  Teaching kids to ride bikes at a young age provides a pathway to lifelong physical fitness and health. We are excited for this next step at our school and eager to get started!” 

Inglewood Elementary Principal Ashley Croft says the bikes will fit the values of their school. “We are thrilled to be able to participate in this program and to give all of our students a chance to learn to ride. As a school with an environmental focus, we know that biking can have positive impacts not only for our kids, but also for the planet. We’re honored to receive these bicycles and can’t wait to get rolling with our Kindergarten students!” 

At Inglewood Elementary this program will teach approximately 40 kindergarten students how to ride a bike annually. With the equipment lifespan of 7-10 years, this program will impact up to 400 kids. Stanford Montessori will be able to teach 60 kindergarteners each year, and will impact up to 600 kids over the lifespan of the program.
