Special Needs, Special Children

Special Needs, Special Children is a Non Profit Organization. That helps to introduce all children into the activity of biking, and the sport of BMX. We supply children with free bikes, and training in several areas of the sport.

Starting out as a platform to introduce special needs children into the world of bmx, and biking. We found ourselves also meeting the needs of children that didn't have the means to acquire a bmx bike so we took that on as well. Having a view that all children are special, and they all have special needs. This fit into our ambitions joyfully. Operating solely off the hearts of people like you we aim to see no child go through life without tasting the freedom of haven ridden a bike.

If you would like to sponsor or support us by any means. Please contact us by email at freebike72@aol.com or by phone at 630-709-2836 We accept new or used bikes, bike parts, and components. We also accept new or used bike safety equipment. if you would like to make a cash donation ask a representative how you could donate to our paypal account. Thank You - Earl & Deandre Dickens

Re: Special Needs, Special Children

Attention members multiple bikes, and bike parts have been donated to the program. I have everything I need to donate a bike to a special needs kid in my area. If any of the  members would like to donate a bike in there area. Please PM me about bike/bike part availability. This is a great way to share our love of the sport of BMX.
