Standard Bike Applications are OPEN
UPDATE: Due to an overwhelmingly positive response, the 2022 Bikes for Kids applications were filled sooner than expected. Registration is now closed.
Do you have (or do you know) a child with a disability who needs a new bike? Apply today for a FREE standard bike through our Bikes for Kids program! Applications are open until Monday, October 10th at 5:00 p.m. A few requirements must be met:
- The bike recipient must be under the age of 21 and live in one of the 30 counties we serve in the St. Louis region (Missouri and Illinois).
- The bike recipient must have a medically diagnosed disability.
- A parent, guardian or caregiver must be present pick up the child’s bike from the 2022 Bikes for Kids event on November 19, 2022.
It’s not surprising that bikes are one of the highest kid-requested Christmas list items. Bikes give kids the freedom and independence to explore the world, play outside with friends and family, and make memories that will last a lifetime. There’s nothing like seeing the smile on a child’s face when they ride a bike for the first time or try out a new set of wheels!
That’s why every year, Variety the Children’s Charity hosts the Bikes for Kids event, providing kids with special needs both standard and adapted bikes so they can explore the world around them in a whole new way! We are excited to see the smiles of Variety Kids with their new bikes soon! Visit the Bikes for Kids website for more information.
