George’s Freedom On Wheels

George is an active 7-year-old first grader who loves to play sports. He was born with spina bifida but he doesn’t let that slow him down. In fact, he wants to ride a bike so he can be “one of the guys” with his cousins. With your help, Variety – the Children’s Charity of Wisconsin will fund a new adaptive bike which George will peddle with his hands and arms. The estimated cost of George’s adaptive bike is $3,000. Please share in the joy of getting George his new bike before summer arrives. We suggest a donation of $20 but EVERY gift, big or small, is greatly appreciated! Donate now!
