Generous Donation Will Add Another Week to Bike Camp

Between now and the end of the year, Howard and Iris Rosen will generously donate up to $5,000 on a matching gift basis in support of Friendship Circle’s Bike Camp.

Why Bike Camp?

Noah and Hannah Tighe, the niece and nephew of Howard and Iris, participated in this program last year and learned how to ride a bike for the very first time, without training wheels in less than one week! The success of the program was astounding to Howard and Iris. However, due to the high demand for this camp, all of the children that wanted to participate were unable to. This is why it is their desire to underwrite a second week of camp in 2014 with your help.

More About Bike Camp

Friendship Circle has partnered with iCan Bike Program to teach children with special needs to ride a bike in just one week. They go from training wheels to two-wheelers before our eyes. For more information, please check out: iCan Bike
