Bikes for Kids Makes Good on Their Name

The VCF helps provide brand new bikes to underprivileged kids through Bikes for Kids.

In June 2014, fifty children of all ages arrived at the Sports Center of Connecticut for a day of family fun. Much to their delight and surprise, the kids went home with free, brand new bikes and helmets thanks to support from VCF and other sponsors of The Foundation for Life's 8th Annual Bikes for Kids event. Since 2007, Bikes for Kids has given away over 1500 bikes and helmets to underprivileged youth. The goal is to provide kids a safe way to get out in their communities, feel a sense of pride and excitement as well as to stay fit in a healthy way.
