The bike safety rodeo is hosted and co-sponsored by the Snoqualmie Police Department and the Tanner Jeans Memorial Foundation.
The Tanner Jeans Memorial Foundation is a nonprofit organization formed eight years ago in response to the loss of 7-year-old Tanner Jeans. He was bicycling with friends when he was run over by a pickup in front of his Snoqualmie Ridge home.
The foundation has supported various athletic scholarship, academic scholarship and child safety programs throughout the Snoqualmie Valley since its inception. The foundation is dedicated to teaching kids to “Have Fun, Play Fair and Play Safe” and to ensuring that Tanner’s legacy lives on.
