WHY WE RIDE/RUN: At Central Park School for Children we believe promoting wellness is also promoting high academic achievement, social growth, and emotional peace. In urban settings there are additional challenges to making sure our children have access to green spaces in order to play and work together with others. This is a first annual event to help form local relationships, community awareness, and support for our young middle school athletic program. To check out more about our growing sports program visit: www.riseupphoenix.org.

Rise up, Phoenix!
