On March 26th, the team at South Texas Renal Care Group partnered with North Park Subaru to sponsor the Siclovia “Earn-a-Bike” program that awarded deserving youth from lower income neighborhoods the opportunity to earn a brand new bicycle. Attendees participated in a three-step process that empowered and promoted safe cycling and a healthy lifestyle.
Children were paired with volunteers who helped them assemble their bicycle. After the bikes were put together, everyone joined a safety cycling workshop and that also highlighted the benefits of living a healthy lifestyle.
To celebrate the accomplishment of the event, participants and volunteers went for a group bike ride around the neighborhood to show off their newly acquired skills.
“It was an honor and a privilege to have the opportunity to partner with Christian Sandoval for Earn-a-Bike and Siclovia San Antonio. Establishing a healthy lifestyle and routine in one’s youth is key to leading a long and healthy life when you’re older. Exercise is a proven way to reduce stress, maintain a healthy weight and prevent diseases like diabetes, heart disease and kidney disease,” said Dr. M. Reza Mizani.
