Ahwatukee’s own Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona partnered with Shamrock Farms and The Be Kind People Project this May to present a bike, helmet and lock to special children in Arizona through the Cycle for Success program.

Cycle for Success focuses on increasing children’s self-esteem, encouraging the community to become involved in the lives of at-risk children and promoting volunteerism in local schools. Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona and The Be Kind People Project want to advocate health and safety of children, recognize random acts of kindness that may otherwise go unnoticed, and encourage community involvement in the lives of at-risk youth.

The team rode into the Cesar Chavez Community School to present three outstanding children with their very own bikes, helmets and locks. And, as an added treat, free lunch from Subway and Shamrock Farms for their classes. As a special surprise in honor of the end of the school year, however, Subway and Be Kind also partnered with Arizona Diamondbacks legend Luis Gonzales and the Epik Dance Crew to put on an all-school student assembly, focusing on raising the entire school’s awareness of the importance of being kind to each other.
