BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - Friday at 3233 Main Street in Buffalo, Variety - The Children's Charity of Buffalo and Western New York in cooperation with Freedom Concepts, will donate a specifically adaptive bicycle to the Cantalician Center.

The brand new piece of equipment is valued at over $3,700 and will be used by the children at the Cantalician Center in their education and therapy programs.

For many of these children, without this specially designed piece of equipment, they would not have the chance to ride a bicycle and this new bike gives these very special children freedom, mobility, and self confidence.

Variety is able to donate this bicycle in thanks to a grant from Freedom Concepts and the generosity of Western New Yorkers during the 50th Annual Variety Kids Telethon broadcast in March on WKBW Channel 7.
