Nashville nonprofit Oasis Center has been given a $100,000 grant by insurer Humana to beef up its Bike Workshop and Fitness program, which trains low-income youth to rebuild and maintain bicycles while promoting bicycling use and safety in their neighborhoods.
“The Bike Workshop is forever changed by this grant,” said Hal Cato, CEO for Oasis Center. “Our immediate plans include renovating the current Workshop space, which is in desperate need of the basics, such as plumbing, heating and cooling. We’re also going to be able to create a mobile Workshop to take into the most at-risk areas of Nashville.”The Bike Workshop is a collaboration with Halcyon Bike Shop and was recently given another boost by Vanderbilt University’s School of Nursing, which is developing a complementary healthy lifestyles curriculum. In addition to its Oasis Center check, the Humana Communities Benefit program also has given the Mental Health Association of Middle Tennessee $10,000 and Urban Housing Solutions $5,000.

The students enrolled in this summer's Accelerator boot camp at Vanderbilt's Owen School will spend a good bit of their time devising new strategies to help Bridgestone reach more customers through its sports sponsorships, which include the Super Bowl and the NHL. Other organizations who will benefit from the students' brain power are the HIMSS Medical Banking Project, the Nashville Music Business Council, auto maker Lexus, music start-up MyWerx and the Oasis Center.

New local brewery Jubilee Craft Beer is rolling out its products to much of the Nashville market this month. The wrinkle in its business plan: Half of all profits will go the Oasis Center, which works with at-risk youth.
“Oasis does such amazing work, but not many people under the age of 55 have heard of them. What better way to start the conversation than over a beer?” Dunkerley noted, adding that information about Oasis will appear on the side of the 6 pack holders with a map to their office on the bottom.
