KIT KARZEN FOUNDATION LAUNCH PARTY


Our buddy Kit is onto something! Come to Cynergy Cycles in Santa Monica this Saturday to celebrate the launch of The Kit Karzen Foundation. There will be food, drinks, music, goldsprints and prizes. Bicycles will be donated to Encino Velodrome Youth Program and the 1000 Bikes Program.

Party starts at 6pm. See you there!

« The Kit Karzen Foundation seeks to enrich the lives of kids and teens with ADHD by promoting and providing the inherent benefits of cycling. The foundation assists municipalities, organizations, and non-profits in the promotion, development, and sustainability of their individual cycling-associated programs.

The foundation’s mission stems from Kit being diagnosed with ADHD at eight years old. Karzen states, “I went through years of all-time lows during my time in medication programs as we were trying to contain my energy help me focus.” At age eleven, Kit opted out of the medication programs and chose to just be himself. Years of poor grades and rocky relationships left Kit ground to his core, but that all changed when Kit’s father introduced him to the sport of track cycling. “When I was thirteen, my dad who used to race said we were going to the Encino Velodrome Youth Cycling Program. He didn’t care if I liked it, I just needed to try it.” Karzen mentions, “Ironically, I loved it, and now medication-free my life is completely different and I’m having a blast.” »
