Dear Just Add Kids friends,

I would like to tell you about a special opportunity that Beatrice, a 4 year old from Racine, has along with 599 other children with special needs. An organization called Friendship Circle is running a campaign called the Great Bike Giveaway where they hope to give away 600 adaptive bikes to children with special needs from around the United States.

I am sure you remember the day you received your first bike. The joy you experienced and the freedom you felt when riding a bike for the first time. For a child with special needs bike riding offers far more than a recreational experience. Bike riding provides a source of much needed exercise, gives therapeutic value and contributes to an inclusive environment where a child with special needs can ride a bike like everyone else.

Due to balance and mobility challenges many children and teens with special needs require the use of an adaptive bikes. Sadly, many cannot afford the high costs of adaptive bikes and remain on the sidelines while watching their friends and family members ride by.

Friendship Circle is currently running the Great Bike Giveaway in an effort to raise over one million dollars so 600 very special children can enjoy something many of us take for granted.

I am writing to you to see if you would be willing to be a partner in this important cause and help Beatrice and 599 others receive a very special bike.

Click here, and if you’re open to donating….awesome! But for sure, you can VOTE for Beatrice and make sure she is one of the bike recipients.  Thank you so much for your time.
