Join the Great Bike Getaway!
For a child with special needs, bike riding is far more than a recreational experience. Bike riding offers a source of much-needed exercise and provides therapeutic value while contributing to an inclusive environment where a child with special needs can ride a bike like everyone else.
Hundreds of children and teens with special needs require the use of an adaptive bike, yet most parents cannot afford the high costs and their children never get to experience the joy of riding a bike.
Welcome to the Great Bike Giveaway.
That’s why Friendship Circle created The Great Bike Giveaway, a platform where you can win an adaptive bike. From February 10th, 2021 to March 10th, 2021, participants have the opportunity to participate in the giveaway and win the bike best suited for them.
What the Great Bike Giveaway Provides
- A simple fundraising platform to help you raise money for an adaptive bike.
- Discounted pricing on adaptive bikes making it easier to fundraise.
- The potential for matching donations to make your fundraising even easier.
- Marketing support to help you get the word out.

Cypress School Update
Cypress will increase to three in-person days per week for those students enrolled in the ABA program. The third day will be from 1-4 and is planned for the second week of February. Cypress is hopeful they can continue to expand in-person opportunities in the spring semester once staff can be vaccinated.
Adult Day Program Update
With quality classes and presentations, the Adult Programs are continuing to provide education through Zoom on social skills development, recreation, and employment skills. We hosted a highly successful virtual Holiday Spectacular on December 23rd with 92 participants in attendance. It was a fun event with singing, an ugly sweater contest, and games. All Three Adult Programs have reached 90% or higher for weekly participation on Zoom and close to 100% participation in daily wellness checks!
