Our friends over at Friendship Circle, a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to the families of individuals with special needs, will be holding their second annual Great Bike Giveaway (April 15 – May 12) — a national contest that donates adaptive bikes to children with special needs. Winners will be drawn on May 13, 2013.
The Great Bike Giveaway is partnering with adaptive bike companies (click here to read more about these bike sponsors) from around the country to donate top of the line adaptive bikes to children and young adults who need them the most. The
How to Participate:
1. Browse through the five types of bikes available and select a bike that will best fit your child’s needs, from there you can also choose the bike drawing you would like to submit for.
2. The bike pages have a space where you can enter the contest. Submit a picture of your child with special needs along with a short explanation (250 character maximum) about why this child needs an adaptive bike.
3. Once the submission has been approved, the participant must be nominated by 50 friends and family members to be entered in the drawing. On each bike page, the name and picture of all submitted entries will be listed. From here, you can click on the picture and nominate them or share the page amongst your own contacts to encourage more nominations or votes.
4. A drawing will be held to determine the winners. Only those with 50 nominations will be eligible. An additional five special Director’s Choice winners will be chosen by a panel of judges based solely on the content of their submission.
Additionally, non-participants can donate money towards adding more bikes to raffle off. On each bike sponsor page there will be an option to donate towards adding an additional bike to the giveaway. Every time the sum reaches the top of the meter another bike is added.
