WEST BLOOMFIELD, Mich. (PRWEB) February 18, 2019
Nonprofit organization Friendship Circle of Michigan is teaming up with adaptive bike donors and companies for the 8th annual Great Bike Giveaway. Focused on children with special needs, the giveaway provides a platform to vote and raise money for children to receive an adaptive bike.
Adaptive bicycles promote better health, inclusion, and plain old fun for children with special needs. Every child, no matter what physical or cognitive disability they may have, deserves the same childhood fun that others get to experience. Many families cannot afford to spend hundreds or thousands of dollars on a bike and unfortunately, insurance companies refuse to cover the costs.The Great Bike Giveaway has made this possible by raising over one million dollars and providing over 1,100 adaptive bikes for children with special needs.
By participating in the Great Bike Giveaway, individuals are making bike riding a possibility through its fundraising platform, discounted prices on adaptive bikes and potential for matching donations. Adaptive bikes range in size, capability, and price making it easy for every family to find the bike that best meets their child’s needs.
This year, individuals get a chance to win by getting the most votes in their bike category. In addition, participants with a minimum of 50 votes will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win as well. The Great Bike Giveaway is open to residents of the United States and Canada and concludes on March 20th, 2019.
In order to participate in the Great Bike Giveaway families, or participants, will be required to complete a registration form and choose the bike they wish to fundraise for. To view a full list of available bikes and rules, or to register, please visit https://www.greatbikegiveaway.com.
