Omaha iCan Bike Volunteers
iCan Bike Camp - hosted by Pediatric Therapy Center, Autism Society Nebraska, & Down Syndrome Alliance of the Midlands
July 18 - 22, 2022
College of Saint Mary - Lied Fitness Center (7000 S 72nd St, Omaha, NE 68124)
We are pleased to offer this bike program to people with disabilities and look forward to having you play an important part in helping our special riders learn to ride a two-wheel bicycle independently!
We encourage volunteers to commit to attending all 5 days of camp for the session(s) selected. Riders bond with their assigned volunteer(s) and rely on the same person to be there to support them each day of camp. We do understand this is not always a possibility and will welcome volunteers any days they can attend.
***NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE WITH PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES NECESSARY***
AGE REQUIREMENT: Volunteers must be at least 15 years old
Walk/jog/run alongside a rider as they are learning to ride a bike during a 75-minute session (with short breaks) for 5 days Monday through Friday. You will provide encouragement and physical support, as needed.
NOTE: Volunteer spotters will walk/jog approximately 3 miles during each 75-minute session so please keep this in mind if considering volunteering for multiple sessions. Unless you are very athletic, you may want to consider not volunteering for more than two (2) sessions per day.
