For a child with a disability, riding a bicycle is much more than a recreational activity. For Matt it's an opportunity to ride through the neighborhood alongside friends. For Connor it's a chance to feel independent, free, and carefree, when the day can present so many other challenges. For a child with a disability who struggles to skip, run, and even walk, an adaptive bicycle can be transformative.
Variety the Children's Charity is launching the "My Bike" Program to give children with disabilities the gift of typical childhood experiences, mobility, and freedom. We want to ensure that children with disabilities can participate in the same activities, so they can feel like any other child.
Please make a donation to Variety the Children's Charity to help provide an adaptive bikes to children. For more details on the program click here http://varietypittsburgh.org/MyBikeProgram.asp
