Variety’s Bikes for Kids | Community Spirit
Each year, just before the holiday season, hundreds of volunteers relive the joy of receiving their first bicycle at Variety’s Bikes for Kids event.
Toolboxes in hand, volunteers build bikes for children who are funded by Variety’s partner agencies throughout the St. Louis area.
Later, Variety St. Louis also presents therapeutic bikes to children with physical disabilities who are unable to ride traditional bicycles with their friends and siblings. The therapeutic bikes are custom-fitted for every child and worth
Since 1996, Variety’s Bikes for Kids program has provided more than 2,500 bikes to children between the ages of 5 and 14.
