Bikes are most often an integral part of childhood, but for some kids in our community, the prospect of owning a bike is only a dream.

On Wednesday, December 11, 2013, our wonderful friends and supporters made the dream of owning a bike a reality for over 150 wonderful and deserving children in the metro Detroit area at Variety-Detroit’s annual Bikes for Kids event.

The event was hosted by local TV personality JoAnne Purtan of WXYZ Channel 7. THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUPPORT!

Our Mission

Variety-Detroit is a children’s charity, simply helping kids no matter the need, and serving as a trusted local source to do what’s right – changing our lives by changing theirs.
