Variety Bikes for Kids

Posted on Thu Oct 11 2018

Variety the Children’s Charity is pleased to announce the 20th season of the Variety Bikes for Kids program. This important program is one of Variety’s many core programs that service children with unique and special needs. The Variety Bikes for Kids mission is simple: the gift of freedom, independence, and mobility for every child.

Variety Bikes for Kids has provided over 4,650 bikes to children in need since inception. This year, on Wednesday, December 5, 2018, hundreds of children will be invited to the annual Variety Bikes for Kids party, where they will be presented with a brand new bicycle, helmet, and lock while experiencing a festive party with clowns, balloon animals, carnival games, dancing, food and drinks.

Many of these children, selected by Variety partnership agencies, have never owned a bicycle. Others find a traditional bicycle challenging due to special needs. Therefore, Variety prescriptively modifies a number of bicycles so that children can experience the confidence, joy and freedom that outdoor mobility provides.

Please consider supporting this heartwarming program by purchasing a bike with an accompanying lock and helmet for presentation to a child this year during the Bikes for Kids party. Each contribution ($182.45 per bike) is a tax-deductible donation that will change the life of a child this holiday season.

You may wish to sponsor several children, provide one bike, or contribute to the effort. All program sponsors will be invited to attend the Bikes for Kids Party to witness the beauty of your gift of mobility.

To donate, please call (248) 258-5511.  Donations may also be made online by clicking the red DONATE button on our website.  (Please note Bikes for Kids with your donation.)
