WE BRING OUT THE UNSTOPPABLE IN KIDS

WE BRING OUT THE UNSTOPPABLE IN KIDS

CYCLEHEALTH IS
KID-POWERED WELLNESS

CycleHealth offers fitness challenges, motivation programs, and adventure races that keep kids motivated year-round. Our innovative Sweat Rx gives pediatricians a concrete tool to inspire kids to get active. Kids across Minnesota are getting engaged and ready to lead us to a new cycle of health.

KIDS GET SWEATY
WITH SWEAT Rx

What is Sweat Rx? It’s literally a prescription being delivered by more than 100 Minnesota pediatricians to activate kids.

WHAT DOES SWEAT Rx OFFER?

FITNESS CHALLENGES

Independent endeavors that kids self-start and track their progress to persevere and reach the goal. World-class motivational programs, training videos, and online support give kids the tools they need.

ADVENTURE RACES

The winter Kidarod, spring Resilinator, and summer BreakAway Kids Tri give all kids a chance for a victory in sport. Kids become more resilient as they overcome obstacles, fatigue and self-doubt to cross the finish line.

KIDS SERVING KIDS

With our charitable giving programs, we inspire kids to “play it forward” by educating them that it’s not enough to have a victory for yourself without serving others at the same time. Each of our events has a charity partner, carefully selected by our KAP team.

SAVE THE CAMP

When our KAP team learned that Minnesota’s beloved camp for children with cancer had suddenly lost its funding and was being canceled, they voted unanimously to save it. The camp serves more than 100 kids with cancer and their siblings, and is a collaborative effort of Children’s Hospitals of MN, True Friends, and the Randy Shaver Cancer Research & Community Fund. Hundreds of kids joined the Save the Camp effort in 2015, and raised a record $65,484 to cover the cost of the camp and give another donation to the pain clinic at Children’s Hospital.


FINISH THE CLINIC

In 2014, CycleHealth Kids raised $62,800 for the first-of-its-kind Pediatric Pain, Palliative and Integrative Medicine Clinic at Children’s Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota. The funds raised were used to pay for extraordinary items inside the clinic.


FEED HUNGRY KIDS

Second Harvest Heartland was the charity partner beneficiary of the Kidarod. After learning that 1 in 6 Minnesota kids don’t have enough food to eat, the KAP team was inspired to be part of the solution. Kids who participate in theKidarodwere encouraged to participate in our food drive, with all food raised going to Second Harvest. Kids earned cool prizes by collecting food, including a custom Wheaties box courtesy of General Mills. In all, kids raised 2,648 pounds of food during the Kidarod campaign. Congratulations kids!


TOTAL IMPACT BY KIDS SINCE 2014:

Dollars raised

3000

pounds of food delivered

What is a Resilinator?
It’s a kid who knows how to roll with the punches in life. A kid who keeps functioning when adversity strikes. A kid who faces setbacks and refuses to quit.
What’s the Resilinator?
Set on Minnesota's finest disc golf course, the Resilinator is a buddy race designed to test your physical strength, mental toughness, and teamwork. Three Rivers Park District is again our host partner for this first-of-its-kind adventure race with obstacles and challenges you'll conquer buddy pairs racing together.

Each pair must include at least one kid between the age of 7 and 17, plus a kid or adult buddy between the age 7 to 107. Adult buddies must have a moderate fitness level, as this race is designed to be challenging.

Buddy Combination Ideas:
– Two Friends
– Two Siblings
– Kid/Parent
– Kid/Mentor
– Kid/Grandparent
– Kid/Coach

Once you've chosen your racing buddy, make sure he or she registers for the event and chooses the same time slot you selected so you can start together.

REGISTRATION IS OPEN!

TRY THE TRI!
MAKE YOUR RACE COUNT FOR KIDS IN NEED
The BreakAway Kids Tri is the one time each year we ask kids to play it forward by fundraising to help with two needs:

Fund a week-long adventure camp for kids with cancer or blood disorders and their siblings
Fund our scholarship & support program so we never have to say no to kids who want to participate in our programs & events.

All kids/siblings who raise $300 will be recognized at the race on our stage, receive a custom award, and be eligible for prize drawings.
FALL
NEW event to come!
We’re also working on an Adventure day in FALL to celebrate those kids who complete all three challenges and races.
