In addition to supporting many other local charities, the ride benefits Kiwanis youth organizations sponsored by the Kiwanis Club of Fort Worth
The Kiwanis Club sponsors four Key Clubs in the following Fort Worth, Texas and surrounding area high schools:  North Crowley, Paschal, Southwest and Trimble Tech High Schools as well as a Terrific Kids Program at Diamond Hill Elementary.  What makes Key Club so successful is the fact that it is a student-led organization that teaches leadership through serving others.  Key Club members build themselves as they build their schools and communities. 

 

The “Objects” specific to Key Clubs are to:

bulletDevelop initiative and leadership
bulletProvide experience in living and working together
bulletServe the school and community
bulletCooperate with the school principal
bulletPrepare for useful citizenship
bulletGive primacy to the human and spiritual, rather, than to the material values of life
bulletEncourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships
bulletPromote the adoption and application of higher standards of scholarship, sportsmanship, and social contacts
bulletDevelop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship
bulletProvide a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render unselfish service, and to build better communities
bulletCooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which makes possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and good will.
