By riding with us or supporting a Geerz Rider, you equip at-promise youth with critical life skills learned through mountain biking, away from their screens and out on the open trails of Israel. They combine physical activity, team-building, and problem-solving, take on challenges, and handle frustration. They have the drive… all they need is the equipment. That’s why your donation goes directly to bikes, helmets, gloves, and hydration packs for these teens and pre-teens. Your donation will help them pay to enter the Geerz program so that even youth from low-income families have the opportunity to climb.
Geerz teaches Israeli youth empowerment - without medication, without critique, without humiliation. We demonstrate every day that learning to mountain bike boosts a child’s self-esteem with a healthy, constructive release and the realization that he or she has the power to create a path to confidence and achievement.
