Join the Basin Electric team and help people learn to ride bike

“On Monday, you see these riders come in, some of them are scared to death, they don’t know what to expect. … On Friday, when they’re outside riding, you really can’t put it into words. It’s something you have to see to believe. It’s incredible.” – Kevin Crenshaw, Lose The Training Wheels

Designer Genes

Elizabeth Romanick is part of Designer Genes of North Dakota, part of a group of local families who have family members with Down syndrome. The network of families offers support and information to each other.

It’s your chance to help someone learn to ride bike!

Designer Genes of North Dakota is bringing a new camp to Bismarck. From Aug. 6-10, volunteers will teach participants to ride bike at the Lose The Training Wheels Bike Camp.

Basin Electric is forming a team to be spotters that week from 9:50 a.m. – 11:20 a.m. Please think about volunteering and also sharing this message with friends. This isn’t limited to Basin Electric employees!

Wanna be a part of this? Contact Jen Holen, Basin Electric charitable giving coordinator, at or 223-0441.

Not sure? Watch this video, produced in Arlington, VA, at a Lose The Training Wheels camp there. It’ll give you a better idea of what you’ll be doing.

Please note:

  • You must be 16 years of age or older to be a spotter.
  • If you can’t come all five days, think about coming two or three days, or team up with a co-worker and split the week!
  • Basin Electric employees don’t need to take vacation time, just need to get their supervisor’s approval.
