The Get Out There Program
Let me empower your audience!
I started this program towards the end of 2014 and it started with talks at elementary schools. Since then I have given talks up to the University level, and I’m looking to engage with cycling clubs/shops and outdoor stores as well. My message empowers people to live healthy, adventurous, and sustainable lives. At the end, I give a demonstration on the unicycle, which stands almost 5 feet tall and weighs up to 90 lbs with all my gear! (That’s the kids’ favorite part.)
The talks usually last 30-60 minutes as a gym assembly, with a demonstration towards the end of riding the unicycle around the gym or, if more space is necessary, around the parking lot. You’re also welcome to book me for a whole day!
The talks always include a Q&A segment toward the end, where the audience has a chance ask questions about the trip and whatnot. At the elementary level, we will also plan for additional classroom visits, where I am able to talk to a smaller group of kids, and use the chalkboard to draw a map of my journey.
These can be adapted to whichever venue has the interest in my talk. I personalize each talk depending on my audience.
These classroom visits are where I will present part or all of my forthcoming children’s book, LUNO, about a boy who rides on one wheel to South America, the crazy encounters that take place along the way. I will illustrate this entire book with my foot! I empower kids, both able and disabled with the idea that anything is possible, whether it be unicycling 15,000 miles to another continent, or drawing and painting with all four limbs!
If you are part of a school, university, cycling club/shop in a town through which I’ll be riding, email me. Although I have specific charges for various venues, I’m also open to using a pay-what-you-can system, and I ask that if a school has the budget, or wishes to get a pool of donations together from the community, that they feel free to use that system!
