GROC Honored by Department of Human Services – GROC will be accepting an “ Outstanding Asset Builder “ Award on Oct 1st we ere nominated for this award by Mike Cooper the Penfield's Director of Parks and Recreation. The Asset Builder Award recognizes those who who donate their time in an effort to encourage our youth in leading positive healthy lives. The award will be given at the Zoo at 11am on Oct 1st.
I would like to personally thank Adam Reitz who as a GROC board member is the chair of the Youth Education Committee for GROC. Adam has developed the SingleTrack Academy program which has had over 100 young adults through the program. GROC Singletrack Academy is an educational summer program for young riders. Over the course of eight weeks, the comprehensive program teaches participants to become better riders, but also seeks to instill in young riders positive attitudes about themselves, their community, and the environment.
All of the positive efforts put into the community by our board, volunteers, and families is being recognized, not only by those who use the trails but those land managers and community organizations. Shared- Use trails absolutely have an impact that extends beyond mountain bikers.
Thank you again for your efforts and support
