Strider for Life, named after the children’s balance bike, is a children’s bike race that donates all proceeds, tax-free, to Summit County’s Flight For Life organization. The race does not have a date set for 2017, but is typically held in August.
The race is for children ages 1 through 5. While the event is “bring your own bike,” the Strider for Life team has four extra balance bikes available for each heat. For older children, the course will feature ramps, zigzags and other features, while toddlers will just do one loop around the course.
