Christian is a young man with a diagnosis of Down Syndrome. He is being raised by a single mom in a household long on love, but short on money for extras.

At school, Christian has discovered the joy of riding an adaptive bike. He loves it because it allows him to be social and interact with people. It also provides great physical activity and is both confidence boosting and encourages independence. Having an adaptive tryke at home would allow him to participate in his favorite activity after school and on weekends…meaning more socialization, and more exercise!

Variety KC partners are especially happy to donate adaptive bikes, it’s a passage of childhood (and adulthood) that everyone should have the chance to experience. So, Christian is getting his bike….but there are so many more who need one too. Won’t you help us to make sure every child has a bike they can ride?  Donate today at
