Phoenix Children's Hospital received a $5,000 grant to revise and improve its Bicycle Driver's Ed program. The program strives to reduce the number of childhood injuries due to bicycle accidents by teaching kids to 'drive' their bikes with the same care they'd use to drive a car. The program, targeted at young people ages 12 to 17, has also received grants from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Note: PeopleForBikes does not fund education grants.
