Friendship Circle Marks A Decade Of The Great Bike Giveaway

Nonprofit organization Friendship Circle of Michigan is teaming up with adaptive bike donors and companies for the 10th 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. 

Riding a bike is a treasured childhood experience that many children with special needs miss out on. 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, raising over one million dollars and providing over 1,350 adaptive bikes for children with special needs over the last 8 years. 

By participating in the Great Bike Giveaway, individuals provide an opportunity for children with special needs to win an adaptive bike. The Great Bike Giveaway offers a fundraising platform for friends and family members to win or purchase an adaptive bike at a discounted price. Adaptive bikes range in size, capability, and price. The Great Bike Giveaway makes it easy for every family to find the bike that best meets their child’s needs.

Individuals can win the adaptive bike of their choice by getting the most votes in their bike category. Note that participants with a minimum of 50 votes will be entered into a drawing for a chance to win as well. Families are encouraged to use the Great Bike Giveaway’s specialized website as a way to raise funds for the discounted bike they choose. 

The Great Bike Giveaway is open to residents of the United States and Canada and starts on February 10th, 2021 at 12pm EST and concludes on March 29th, 2021. Voting will conclude on March 10th. Beginning on February 10th participants can register, set up their campaign page, and start collecting votes and donations towards their own bike.

In order to participate in the Great Bike Giveaway, families and/or participants are required to complete a registration form and choose the bike they wish to fundraise for.
