Lemonade Taste Testing At Kennedy Day School!
Those Kennedy Day School kids are at it again! This time they are taste testing lemonade to decide which brand is preferred by their customers. Check out what skills they are putting to use and what adventures they find in their quest to find the best lemonade on the market to sell at their Bug’s Bikes Lemonade Stand!

And they are building! Catch up with the kids from KDS and see how their Lemonade Stand is going. Here is a sneak Peek…
As many of you know, Bug’s Bikes is the brain child of our wonderful 5 year old who we warmly refer to as Bug. After finishing his second day of Adaptive Bike Camp at Franciscan Hospital for Children last summer, Bug realized that he was the only child taking home his bike every day. Adamant that other children should be able to experience the joy of riding a bike, and be able to bring those bikes home, we worked together as a family to launch Bug’s Bikes with a Lemonade Stand.
The Kennedy Day School (KDS) is a program located on-site at Franciscan Hospital for Children providing collaborative special education, therapeutic and health services to over 80 students, ages 3 to 22, with significant, complex needs. The Project Excel vocational program at KDS provides an array of vocational opportunities for students 14 years of age and older.
The Kennedy Day School is collaborating with Bug’s Bikes on opening the first Bug’s Bikes Lemonade Stand in a school environment! Students from the Project Excel program were so inspired by Bug that they are now working with their teachers to assist in all aspects of the project – from building to decorating, designing advertisements to squeezing lemons. Further, the money raised from the opening of the lemonade stand will be used to purchase an adaptive bicycle for a KDS student! The KDS students and staff will be keeping us updated on their lemonade stand progress and posting updates on the FHC blog, HERE.
This is a program that we hope to build upon in order to help other schools fund bikes for students in need. Please follow along with us and watch the KDS progress as this collaboration and program evolves.
