Kohl's Kids Bike Smart
Kohl's Kids Bike Smart, powered by Local Motion, is a bike skills training program that teaches children to ride bikes safely, with a goal of keeping them active and injury-free.
Kohl's Kids Bike Smart is a regional bike skills initiative that works with a range of partners across Vermont to get children in grades K through 8 riding their bikes with style and confidence. Kohl's Kids Bike Smart trainings and camps all use a games-based curriculum developed by Local Motion and the Center for Health and Learning. Participants all have the opportunity to practice their cycling skills under the supervision of a trained instructor. Bikes and helmets are provided for the duration of the training to all children who need them.
In the summer, Kohl's Kids Bike Smart works with municipal parks and recreation departments to offer bike skills camps and trainings as part of towns' summer camp schedule. These trainings range from one-time, three-hour intensive trainings to a week-long series of daily two-hour trainings as part of "general" summer camps to full-week bike adventure camps.
Kohl's Department Stores, through its Kohl's Cares® program, has been a partner of Vermont Children's Hospital (VCH) at Fletcher Allen Health Care since 2004. One element of this program is the sale of cause merchandise, including plush toys, books, CDs and cookbooks, for $5 each.
Through the sale of these items, Kohl's donates 100 percent of the net profit to the Vermont Children's Hospital to support injury prevention programming in the community.
To date, our Burlington Kohl's store at the University Mall has raised $174,949 to support pediatric injury prevention programs. Consider purchasing these high-quality items for your family, friends, for donations during holidays and all year long! View what is currently available at Kohl's:
