The Great Bike Giveaway… Helping Special Kids Get Special Bikes

To feel the wind hitting your face as you reach top speed on your bicycle is an experience that no child should have to miss out on. Sadly, many kids don't get this chance. Often, this is due to a physical and/or cognitive disability that prevents them from being able to ride a standard bicycle.

And what's that much more frustrating is that while indeed special bikes do exist to accommodate many different types of challenges, they come with high price tags that put them out of reach for most families who are already struggling to meet the additional financial pressures so often faced by those who have a child with special needs.

This is why I am overjoyed to help spread the word about a very important event...

For the second consecutive year, Friendship Circle is holding The Great Bike Giveaway, a national contest giving away adaptive bikes to children with special needs. They are partnering with bike companies from around the US to provide some of the best adaptive bikes to the children and young adults who need them the most.

Here's a peak at the awesome prizes being offered:

Buddy Bike Family BB102-AL-8 Rifton Adaptive Tricycle 16" Terrier Tricycle Flaghouse Port-O-Trike

And there's more good news... YOU can help ADD MORE BIKE PRIZES to the contest by PROMOTING the contest to your friends and family, and by DONATING to one of the four bike categories!

The contest closes on May 12th so Enter and Donate Now!
