(PHOENIX – Sept. 27, 2019) - Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona, in partnership with Subway Restaurants of Arizona, Dasani Water, Shamrock Farms and The Be Kind People Project, rode into Desert View Elementary in Phoenix this September to recognize two special students as part of its Cycle for Success program. Through a teacher-led nomination process, wherein educators are asked to submit nominations highlighting students’ good works both inside and outside of the classroom, one fifth grader and one third grader were chosen to be surprised with bikes, helmets and locks, as well as Subway lunches for their entire classes.

“She is one of those rare, special students who a teacher might encounter only a few times in their career,” says principal Maria Farmer. “This student manages to stay positive through all of life’s challenges, even through losing her mother last year.”

The Cycle for Success program has been operating for more than a decade and focuses on increasing children’s self-esteem, encouraging the community to become involved in the lives of at-risk children and promoting random acts of kindness in local schools. Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona and The Be Kind People Project advocate for the health and safety of children, recognize random acts of kindness that may otherwise go unnoticed, and encourage community involvement in the lives of at-risk youth.

“This student is a shining example of what a kind student should be,” says Farmer. “She has a student with special needs in her class this year and is always the first person to jump up and help him.”

Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona’s mission is to provide sports equipment, uniforms, registration fees and access to major sporting events for kids who might not otherwise be able to participate. Subway Restaurants of Arizona supports kids in sports because it believes basic sports skills—teamwork, commitment and accountability—help kids throughout their lives. Subway Kids & Sports of Arizona has reached more than 25,000 Arizona children since its inception in 1999.
