The kids and physical therapists at School #84 are very grateful to the Variety Club for choosing our school to be the recipient of one of their donations.  This bike has been used weekly for the past two years and will continue to serve this population for many years to come.  We can’t thank the Variety Club enough for their donation. It is a wonderful organization.
