Advanced Thin Films (ATF), an IDEX company which manufactures optical solutions for the aerospace and life sciences industries, teamed up with a local non-profit to build and deliver 25 new bicycles to children at a local YMCA last month.
Located in ATF’s hometown of Boulder, Colorado, Wish for Wheels partners with companies to build and deliver bikes to children in low-income schools. Through team building events, challenging activities and company sponsorship, Wish for Wheels has given more than 30,000 bikes to children across the country.
With more than 150 miles of bike path in Boulder, ATF aims to help children understand the importance of maintaining an active lifestyle.
