Presley G received a bike from a third party. Congratulations Presley G. There are still 600 children who need bikes and each donation puts us closer to giving another child with special needs the same wonderful opportunity Presley G has been given.

Why Presley G Needs a Bike

Presley G is entered for the Duet Wheelchair Bicycle
My 7 year old, Presley, is the happiest, spunkiest little girl I know! She is so kind and sweet to everyone and can light up an entire room when she rolls in! She has always wanted to ride a bike! She is in 2nd grade and she sees all of her classmates and friends riding their bikes outside and asks me often in the summertime, "Mom, how can we help me ride a bike?" I love that she asks "how" and she tries to problem solve it and find a way because she knows she needs to adapt. We were able to drive 2 hours north one time and have a trial ride on The Duet at an adaptive sports program and you should have seen her face! She absolutely BEAMED! I was crying, she was giggling & trying to get her hands above her head squealing! She was so happy and said, "I did it! I really did it!" We have not had the money to be able to purchase her one at this point and I just know she would be the happiest girl if we could spend our summer on bike rides around the neighborhood park & up the canyon trails!

Questions?

1. What is the Great Bike Giveaway?

The Great Bike Giveaway is a campaign started by Friendship Circle of Michigan giving children and teens with special needs an opportunity to win an adaptive bike. The Great Bike Giveaway was started in 2012 and has grown each year. In 2016 we hope to give away 600 adaptive bikes.

2. Why a bike?

Almost every child can recall their first experience learning to ride a bike and the exhilaration and confidence that came with mastering this skill. We believe every child deserves to have that same experience, regardless of their abilities. Adaptive bikes give individuals with special needs independence, exercise and most importantly the chance to be included in bike rides with their friends and family.

3. What are donations used for?

We need your support in giving away adaptive bikes. Donations are used to add more bikes to the Great Bike Giveaway. We hope with your support we will be able to give away 600 bikes. You will also have the opportunity to donate an extra $5. This will be be used to help support and maintain the Great Bike Giveaway going forward.

4. Is this a Contest or a Crowdfunding Campaign?

The answer is a little bit of both. Our goal is that we raise enough money to give away 600 adaptive bikes to all 600 participants in the contest. If we are unable to meet this goal the Great Bike Giveaway will be a contest with chances to win by getting the most votes or by being selected in a drawing. Read the complete rules for a complete explanation of how the contest works.

5. How can I help?
