Bringing people together, helping provide outdoor exercise, and making a difference in people’s lives- it’s all part of being a good neighbor and community leader.
Opportunity for Youth
In 2006 Freetime Inc. implemented the Biking & Boating Buddies Program to support Big Brothers Big Sisters of America. This program provides free rentals to the volunteers and the underprivileged children they mentor. For nine years, we have offered free rental use to tens of thousands of Big Brothers Big Sisters matches across the nation.
What began as an idea to provide a fun outdoor activity for matches to enjoy together, has grown into a nationwide program, supporting 20 Big Brothers Big Sisters chapters across the United States. The Biking Buddies program is in place to ensure that those volunteers always have something fun, fit, and free to do with the children they mentor.
In addition to our national Big Brothers Big Sisters Program, we strive to make the same commitment in the local communities in which we operate. We donate to over 250 local charities every year. We implement special days for kids camps, YMCA, Boys & Girls Clubs, schools, churches, Scout Groups, and other non-profit entities. Our donations include donated activity rentals, gift certificates, silent auction items, and more. Furthermore, we support Parks and Recreation programs, as well as “Friends of the Park” entities.
