Each year, Variety the Children’s Charity hosts a Bikes for Kids event to provide therapeutic and standard bikes to kids and teens with physical and developmental disabilities living in the greater St. Louis region. Bikes give children the freedom and independence to explore the world, play outside with friends and family, and make memories that will last a lifetime.
