Longmont, Colo., June 27, 2024 — Can’d Aid, the national nonprofit that rallies volunteers to become catalysts for change in their own communities, is partnering with Wisconsin-based 1UP USA to rack up the good vibes this summer.

Between June 27 – August 15, a portion of proceeds from every product sold will benefit Can’d Aid’s Treads + Trails program. The two companies share a mission of getting kids outside, on two wheels and living healthy, active lives.


Through the Treads + Trails program, Can’d Aid has facilitated the donation of over 11,000 bikes. Local volunteers in each community are empowered to participate in bike building events, where they are tasked with assembling Can’d Aid’s signature cherry red bikes.

Completed bikes are then donated to children in high-need schools—often the very first bikes some kids will ever receive! 1UP USA combines superior materials and craftsmanship with one goal in mind: to make transporting your bike and gear easy.

From the simple, affordable Quik Rack, to the super durable, all new Super Duty Rack and the fully accessorized Equip’D Rack, there’s a rack for whatever you ride. Looking to hit the road with a new bike rack this summer? Make your purchase from 1UP USA between June 27 - August 15, and a portion of the proceeds will support a great cause.


“By providing bikes to kids, we get them off screens, outdoors and having fun in a healthy way,” said Can’d Aid Founder and Executive Director Diana Hicks. “So, if you’re considering getting a new bike rack for your summer adventures, now is the perfect time to make that purchase. Travel with security and ease, while making a life-changing difference for kids.”


Support children around the country with the purchase of any product from the 1UP USA website and stay tuned for other ways to participate. Images for editorial sharing can be found here, and you can learn more about Can’d Aid and how to get involved at candaid.org.
