On August 8th the IU had the great honor of hosting Variety's My Bike once more. While the entire staff watched, Charlie Laville and his team gave seven (7) lucky kids their bikes and strollers.
To date, families in Mercer, Butler, and Lawrence Counties have received over 200 pieces of equipment including bikes, strollers, and communication devices, which totals over $300,000.
Variety of Pittsburgh’s “My Bike” program grants individually customized adaptive bikes to eligible children living with disabilities empowering them to experience social belonging, joy and the freedom that comes from riding a bike.
Consistently, parents report these adaptive bikes are giving children with disabilities the opportunity to overcome social isolation, discover the potential in their lives and experience childhood milestones most of us take for granted.
