Free Agent & Toby Wells Foundation are not only dedicated to providing both funds and products to kids in need but also time. Team Manager, Dale Holmes, spent several hours at the track last night with a couple of young men from San Pasqual Academy, a residential foster care facility for teens in San Diego County. The boys enjoyed several hours of one-on-one riding instruction as well as goodie bags stuffed with items from our team sponsors. The boys left stoked and can’t wait for the next trip to the track. For more information, please visit both, Free Agent BMX and Toby Wells Foundation on Facebook or www.Tobywells.org.

Maris Strombergs made a visit to a local Murrieta Elementary School, Cole Canyon. He spent time with the kids sharing the importance of working hard towards your goals and emphasized that a key to success is to “never give up, and try your best all the time”. The kids enjoyed seeing Strombergs’ bike and were excited that he’s heading to London to defend his Olympic Gold Medal. This is one of many visits Strombergs has made to local schools to spend time with the kids and to encourage them to reach their fullest potential. Cheers to Strombergs for making the time to give back even with a crowded training schedule less than 85 days before the Olympic Games!
The Free Agent/Rockstar Team partnered with Toby Wells Foundation (www.tobywells.org) to offer an incentive for several local foster teens at San Pasqual Academy over the past several months to achieve both good marks in school and to be on their best behavior. The REWARD earned: New Free Agent bikes, helmets, annual memberships for each teen through USABMX and other goodies from both of our major team sponsors, Rockstar & Fox. Here’s to encouraging and supporting all of our local foster youth to reach their fullest potential. Cheers!
