“The scholarship recipients this year are an inspiration to all of us at The Booger Fund. They embody what it is to give back to their communities by being active locally and nationally. Our recipients have founded cycling programs, currently mentor other cyclists, and work within their own communities and organizations giving back as much as they can,” states Steve Westover, Executive Director of the Booger Fund. “Many of them have also overcome physical and mental challenges through cycling and credit the bike as the reason they are who they are today. They embody what it means to be a Booger. “
The Booger Fund is honored to make a difference in the life of each individual. It is our mission to create good humans by using cycling as a catalyst to teach kids to give back to their communities and support charities and entities that they care about.
