Wheel Fun – Sedona MTB Festival Raffle 2024

This year we are excited to partner with Wheel Fun, an Arizona based youth cycling non-profit that has made a serious impact on our local community.  With your raffle donations and Wheel Fun’s resonating mission, we are set to reach more kids on bikes!  

Wheel Fun provides free after school bike clubs, mountain bikes, and gear to public schools and underserved students in Arizona.  Our mission is to create community through bikes for ALL riders.  We have the unique opportunity to provide this opportunity to students who do not have access to a bike at home. Watching the impact of this program on our students’ physical and mental health is nothing short of transformative.  Some highlights of our programming:

  • Over 500 students get to ride because of Wheel Fun
  • 20 after school bike clubs established
  • 2 bike parks have been built on public school campuses, with a third on the way
  • Wheel Fun was awarded the “Out Of School Time Program Award of Excellence” (October 2022) as the top after school program in all of Arizona
