About Going Places
Going Places was inspired by founder Katie Blomquist, the North Charleston Title 1 teacher who created the GoFundMe campaign that raised over $80,000 to get all 650 students in her elementary school a new bike and lock helmet. Going Places will continue this work on a much larger level, providing the most basic childhood right to disadvantaged kids – a right to Joy. Currently that joy is being spread by giving out bikes! The organization also provides joy to the teachers and staff who work in Title 1 schools.
