GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO/KJCT)-- Students at Central High School were fired up early Friday morning, because of all the BMX riders in their gym.
The school held an assembly put on by the U.S. Army and AGA Nation, a sports event company, to promote positive habits and mindsets, while BMX riders took flight inside the gym.
Leaders of the event say they hope to inspire kids to go after their dreams, and show that if kids work hard, they can accomplish their goals.
While the bike show was pretty cool for the students, it all served a bigger purpose.
“This program is called ‘Bring Your A Game to School,’ and you’ll hear us talk about different words that start with the letter A that we try to talk to the kids about. Achievement, Anti-bullying, Alliances, AKA friends with people, stuff like that. We try to inspire the kids to go out and achieve whatever is good for them,” said Spokesperson for AGA Nation, Ron Thomas.
And the BMX riders are part of a national team that also brings an anti-drug message with them to the different schools they do shows at.
