What is R.I.S.E.?

R.I.S.E. (Resilience, Inclusion, Social Awareness, Education) is a program curated by the Terence Crutcher Foundation and the USA BMX Foundation. R.I.S.E brings mentorship, history, STEAM education, inclusion, and awareness to the youth of our community. This 12-week program is free to all students residing within North Tulsa ZIP codes! Upon graduation, scholars participating in the program will earn a custom R.I.S.E. jersey, BMX bike & helmet and a lifetime membership at USA BMX.
