The Issue: Bicycling Helps Decrease Obesity and Health Issues

According to the Alliance for Biking and Walking's 2012 report, in states and cities where bicycling and walking occurs more, rates of obesity, high blood pressure, and diabetes are lower. But to ensure that bicycling remains a safe transportation option, it's crucial that riders equip their bikes with lights.

The Campaign: Bike Lights and Helmets for Kids

If this Grassroots campaign raises $400, then BikeTexas can provide bike lights for 40 Texas cyclists to ensure they have the necessary equipment to ride to work or school safely. Each additional $10 raised will provide a bike light set for another child or adult in need.

Through its partnership with Safe Routes to School, BikeTexas works with teachers and schools to educate children about bicycle safety and increase the number of children who bike to school. To date, the program has reached more than 4,000 teachers and approximately 200,000 children with safe cycling education.

To celebrate the launch of Groupon Grassroots, Groupon will provide a $1,000 kickoff grant to this campaign.
