Nine13sports was founded in 2012 and focuses on promoting health, wellness and STEM education for children.
Indianapolis-based Nine13sports is moving into a new headquarters in the city. The fitness-focused nonprofit says the facility north of downtown will streamline operations and house work space and a full equipment repair shop.
The new headquarters, announced on the organizations website, is on 29th St. just west of Martin Luther King Jr. St. In a post from Chief Executive Officer Tom Hanley, he says the building has previously housed companies that built products ranging from bicycles and motorcycles to gooseneck lights.
In his post, Hanley says "the space isn’t just perfect for right now, it is perfect for our future."
Nine13sports was founded in 2012 and focuses on promoting health, wellness and STEM education for children through its Kids Riding Bikes, Kids building Bikes, Kids Riding Bikes-STEM and Explore Indy programs.
The Kids Building Bikes program, announced last year, is a four-week program teaching bike safety and maintenance, with participants riding away with a new bike. The program is geared toward fourth and fifth-graders. Hanley says the program aims to meet kids where they are - at school and in their neighborhoods. When it was announced, he said the goal was to get up to 500 bikes in the community within the first year.
