“Revolution Kids” Fighting for Grant Fundsbrighter planet

The Annapolis Police Department along with the Annapolis Recreation and Parks Department and the Annapolis Department of Transportation, announces a new youth bicycling initiative called Revolution Kids.

To help fund this project, APD has the opportunity to win a $5,000 grant administered by the Brighter Planet Fund but they need our help in an online vote!

So what does a win mean for Annapolis?

  • New bicycle safety programs in Annapolis schools and in the community
  • An opportunity for youth to learn bicycle repair, maintenance and skills while rehabbing rundown bikes
  • Greater awareness of how cars and bicycles can safely “share the road”

The time has come to elevate cycling and bike safety in Annapolis! Please go to the Brighter Planet Fund and vote for Revolution Kids. (free registration required but they don’t spam you)

Currently, the program is in third place by less than 200 votes. Please vote and pass this URL along to others. This is a great no cost way to support your community! You can vote three times!

The project that receives the most votes by December 15th wins the $5,000!
