Tyler droeger fund
The Tyler Droeger Fund was originally created by Tyler Droeger. He started a gofundme campaign upon setting off for a journey to bike 4,000 miles across the Southwest U.S. He hoped to raise awareness about the food crises on the Navajo Nation, and the gofundme campaign was created to raise funds for mountain bike scholarships for Navajo youth.
Tyler was 10 weeks and over 3,200 miles into his journey when he was fatally struck by a car. The Tyler Droeger Fund ensures that Tyler's legacy lives on by providing scholarships and targeted opportunities for Indigenous youth in FLYRS programs.

In 2023, the Tyler Droeger Fund supported no cost programs at Killip Elementary, Star School, Summit High School, and Camp IndiGenious. FLYRS collaborated with the NAU Institute for Native-serving Educators and Flagstaff Unified School District Department of Native American Education for Camp IndiGenious, a week long summer camp for Indigenious youth. A total of 120 youth were served in 2023 through the Tyler Droeger fund including bikes and helmets for the programs that will be utilized in the future.

Take it slow.
Let the sunset be enough to get you to the morning."
