At the Be Good Foundation, we believe in the freedom and transformative power of the bicycle. It's more than just a mode of transportation; it's a catalyst for healing, empowerment, and evolution—an instrument of personal discovery, advocacy, and positive change.
Join us in mobilizing ALL individuals and communities through the power of the bike. Together we can expand Be Good's work in 2024 to create a more equitable and inclusive world of cycling. Let's enrich individuals and communities by using the bicycle as a catalyst for healing, empowerment, and evolution.
Two Words, One Mission
Be Good™ began with a father’s words and a daughter’s mission. Inspired by her transformative experience and life changing connection riding her bicycling to her father’s crash site in Laos, Rebecca Rusch created the Be Good Foundation to help remove what her father, and the war, left behind. 250 million bombs were dropped during the Secret War in Laos; 80 million failed to detonate. Be Good began its work by supporting the removal of UXO (unexploded ordnance) in Laos; transforming lives through safe means of travel (by foot and bike) for children and villagers throughout Laos.
We expanded our transformative mission to create equitable and accessible to cycling for all. In a world where barriers often overshadow opportunities, we see the bicycle as a symbol of freedom. Our vision is clear: to make cycling experiences accessible to every individual, regardless of their background or financial situation.
Your contributions directly funds our scholarship initiatives, breaking down financial barriers and providing life-enriching cycling experiences to individuals who might not otherwise have the opportunity.
Through our grant program, similar to a bicycle hub & spokes, we facilitate connections further mobilizing individuals, groups, and communities to connect with the physical, mental, and social benefits of cycling.
**Evolution of Lives:**
With your support, we are transforming lives, creating opportunities for personal growth and promoting healthier living through the mantra that movement = medicine. The impact of cycling extends far beyond the pedals.
