Can’d Aid Partners With 1UP USA to Get Kids on Bikes


Newly released, high-quality bike racks from 1UP support a great cause!

LONGMONT, Colorado (June 27, 2024) — Can’d Aid, the national nonprofit that rallies volunteers to become catalysts for change in their own communities, is partnering with Wisconsin-based 1UP USA to rack up the good vibes this summer. Between June 27 – August 15, a portion of proceeds from every product sold will benefit Can’d Aid’s Treads + Trails program. The two companies share a mission of getting kids outside, on two wheels and living healthy, active lives.

Through the Treads + Trails program, Can’d Aid has facilitated the donation of over 11,000 bikes. Local volunteers in each community are empowered to participate in bike building events, where they are tasked with assembling Can’d Aid’s signature cherry red bikes. Completed bikes are then donated to children in high-need schools—often the very first bikes some kids will ever receive.
