Young Variety- the Children's Charity

Help Young Variety Fund a #Bike4Brayden!

Young Variety Board Member and Mommy & Me: Sweetheart Dance Founder, Chris Wood is using crowd funding platform Change Heroes to fund a specialized bike for a 12-year-old Mason City boy named Brayden.


Brayden has experienced a wide range of challenges in his life from brain surgeries to seizures. He is unstable on his feet making him unable to ride a traditional bike. Brayden was identified and selected to receive a specialized bike from Variety- the Children’s Charity.


Wood is seeking donations to raise $3,000 for a specialized bike to allow Brayden to safely experience outdoor activities while providing therapeutic benefits at the same time.


We are encouraging the public to donate and share this campaign via social media using the hashtags ‪#‎Bike4Brayden and ‪#‎SupportVarietyKids.
