What Is The Great Bike Giveaway?



The Great Bike Giveaway
With the arrival of spring, many families head outside to ride bikes together. A simple pass time for families of typical kids, but a challenge for those with special needs. But as you will discover below, Friendship Circle of Michigan has partnered with adaptive bicycle companies to give 18 children with special needs a free adaptive bicycle in a contest called The Great Bike Giveaway. Read on for the details!


What is Friendship Circle?

Friendship CircleFriendship Circle of Michigan is a unique organization that creates friendship in the lives of 3,000 children with special needs by providing over 30 weekly and seasonal programs. Over the past few months Friendship Circle realized that many children with special needs miss out on the childhood joy of bike riding because their physical or cognitive limitations make riding a bicycle near impossible.

For this reason they have created a contest that will enable 18 children with special needs to win a bike. This contest will also enable people to learn more about Friendship Circle and raise awareness for all children with special needs.
