What a success! 2016 was the first year of operation for our nonprofit, Napa Valley Pull.
Our mission is to guide kids and families back to the basics and learn to help out each other and our community.
Our team of 30 local BMX bicycle racing riders ranging in age from 4 to 70 was fortunate enough to participate in many Napa area events. And children participating in our program were asked to keep grades at a B average to stay on the team and throughout this process we saw all GPAs go up.
We could not have this success if not for the Napa community and our 2016 sponsors. On behalf of Napa Valley Pull, I’d like to acknowledge our amazing sponsors and those who supported us throughout the year.
First, I’d like to recognize Donny Robinson. Donny is Napa born and bred, won the BMX Olympic Bronze Medal in Beijing and is a former world number one BMX rider. Donny is a big supporter of Napa Valley Pull and an inspiration to me and the team.
We had some amazing sponsors, so I’d like to salute our following sponsors: Jimmy Vasser Chevrolet and Toyota, Tory Lee Designs, Syar, Napa Valley Transportation, Silverado Electric, California Wood Floors, Schmitt Company, Poor House Design, Napa Electric, Bell Products, Squeeze Inn Burgers, Embassy Suites, Jam Cellars, Truchard Winery, Napco, Foster Lumber, Coliseum, The Hub Bike Store, Super Cross Bikes, Tangent Bike Products, Andrews and Thornley GC, Napa Valley Petroleum, Soscol Auto Body, Norman Rose restaurant, Pyro Novelties and all the individuals who continue to support our cause.
We look forward to 2017 and doing more for the kids and the community.
