Wish for Wheels and Assurant Partner to Give Bikes to LISD Students

1st and 2nd grade students at Independence and Valley Ridge Elementary were given bikes and helmets as a part of the Wish for Wheels program.

Last week, Wish for Wheels and Assurant came together to make some LISD students’ wishes a reality! 

1st and 2nd grade students in the ESD programs at Independence and Valley Ridge Elementary were given bikes and helmets as a part of the Wish for Wheels program. Wish for Wheels partners with corporations to give the gift of a brand new bike and helmet to second graders. By encouraging healthy habits at a young age, they have helped increase attendance and create a lifelong love of bikes.

Employees at Assurant, a global provider of risk management products and services, were ready to help as the students selected their new wheels. Assurant staff sized the bikes and helmets to each students, and even gave them pointers as they practiced riding.  

Thank you to Wish for Wheels and Assurant for this gift! Our students will never forget it.
