We are a non-profit organization that relies on volunteers getting involved so we can offer support and information to our member families and the general community. Contribute your time and talents!
Help kids learn to ride a two-wheeler. Each summer, the Autism Society and the Down Syndrome Association of Wisconsin sponsor iCan Shine bike programs in our area. This is a five day program that teaches children with developmental disabilities to ride a 2 wheel bike. We need volunteers who can run alongside the campers on their bikes. This is a great service project for High School Students if you can commit to a 2-hour slot for five consecutive days. It’s great exercise and very rewarding! This year we are in Elkhorn at Lakeland School June 16–20 and in Kenosha at Indian Trail School June 23-27. Call us at 414-988-1260 for a volunteer application!
Watch for the 2014 event: Dylan’s Run to Indian Summer! If you are interested in helping out at the event, please click here for more information. We usually need help with people on site to time the runners, assist on the course directing participants, staffing water stations, and in many more areas.
Remember, this is a journey and we are here to support you.
