Programs:

Variety’s “My Bike” Program provides children with disabilities with adaptive bikes so they may gain the freedom of a bike and the joy of riding alongside family and friends. Variety's "My Voice" Program provides communication devices (i.e. an iPad) to children with a communication disorder to give them a voice at all times. Variety’s “Peak Moments” Program, tailored for children with disabilities, provide places and times for children and their families to be together and have fun, be themselves, be accepted for who they are and feel that they belong to the Variety community/family. For example, Variety hosts an annual Halloween Party at Bayer corporate headquarters outside Pittsburgh and a Holiday Party at Highmark corporate headquarters in Downtown Pittsburgh. Variety’s “My Stroller” Program provides adaptive strollers (i.e. Kid Kart Mighty Lite) to eligible kids with disabilities. Typically, a family must choose between having a wheelchair or adaptive stroller. So, as a wheelchair is more necessary, an adaptive stroller allows for easier “on-the-go” transportation and participation in daily activities.
