Special thank you to the incredible sponsors of the Variety Bikes for Kids 2020-2021 effort! With your amazing support, 142 children received a brand new bike, helmet and lock while experiencing the sights and sounds of a baseball game at Jimmy John's Field in Utica on June 16, 2021.
The Variety Bikes for Kids mission is simple: the gift of freedom, independence and mobility for every child.
Variety Bikes for Kids has provided nearly 5,000 bikes to children in need since inception. With the recent lack of access to traditional bikes due to increased sales during the pandemic, the need for new bikes is critical for children seeking safe outdoor recreation and independence.
Similarly, children who find traditional bicycles challenging due to special needs are also finding more limited access to therapy centers and schools amid the pandemic, resulting in heightened need for prescriptively modified and customized adaptive cycles that can be used at home alongside siblings and friends.
Variety remains dedicated to providing bright and shiny new and adaptive bikes to children.
You can support this effort all year long by purchasing a bike with an accompanying lock and helmet for presentation to a child.
Each contribution ($182.45 per bike) is a tax-deductible donations that will change the life of a child.
Look for more information about this special program in late fall 2021, as we gear up for another year of mobility, freedom and independence for children in need.
