Bikes For Tykes

Every December, the Members of Realities For Children present Bikes For Tykes to local children who have suffered abuse or neglect. The holiday season can be a sad time of year for these local kids, so we come to brighten their day bearing gifts of bikes, helmets and safety gear! You can help us in our effort to reach them this each holiday season, just read on below to find out how!

Realities For Children’s Bikes For Tykes program is one of our longest running distribution programs, distributing bicycles and new helmets to the children we serve since 1996.   Each year individuals, groups and organizations donate their new or used bicycles to us, then we safety-check and refurbish them via local bike shop partners. These bikes are given to registered youth who are being served by one of Realities for Children Charities Affiliate Youth Agencies who serve local children who have been abused, neglected or are at-risk.

At the bike distribution, we provide each child with a helmet to ensure safe riding. Bicycle mechanics are on-hand to properly adjust seat height, select the correctly sized helmet, install training wheels, and help the children pick out just the right bike.

We would like to extend a grateful thank you to all the bike shops that donate their time and support to Bikes for Tykes! We truly couldn’t do it without them.
