Our Community made a Difference 

iCan Shine is a national charitable nonprofit organization which conducts over 100, five-day iCan Bike programs in the U.S. iCan Bike teaches approximately 3,000 people with disabilities how to ride a two-wheeled bicycle each year. Since its inception in 2007, approximately 20,000 people with disabilities have learned to ride a bicycle through this wonderful program. Research shows that over 80% of people with Autism and 90% of people with Down syndrome never experience this thrill. Defying these odds is why we exist!

iCan Bike 2019 in Alpharetta will be July 22-26, hosted by The Alpharetta Department of Public Safety and The Alpharetta Public Safety Foundation.  The iCan Bike program was held at The Cooler Family Skate Center. Save the date as a volunteer or sponsor! If you know someone who would like to sponsor iCan Bike, email Officer Elfreth at aelfreth@alpharetta.ga.us
