For a child with special needs, bike riding is far more than a recreational experience. Bike riding offers a source of much-needed exercise and provides therapeutic value while contributing to an inclusive environment where a child with special needs can ride a bike like everyone else.
Hundreds of children and teens with special needs require the use of an adaptive bike, yet most parents cannot afford the high costs and their children never get to experience the joy of riding a bike.
That’s why Friendship Circle created The Great Bike Giveaway, a platform where you can win an adaptive bike. From February 10th, 2021 to March 10th, 2021, participants have the opportunity to participate in the giveaway and win the bike best suited for them.
Friendship Circle of Michigan is a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to the families of individuals with special needs. In addition to assisting individuals with special needs, Friendship Circle brings together teenage volunteers and children with special needs for hours of fun and friendship. These shared experiences empower the children, our special friends while enriching the lives of everyone involved. Learn more at friendshipcircle.org
The Great Bike Giveaway is dedicated to the memory of Michaela Noam Kaplan of blessed memory. Despite her physical limitations due to cerebral palsy, Michaela adored life, traveled the world, went to school —
and loved her adaptive bicycle.
