Media Event: Variety – the Children’s Charity in partnership with Holmes Murphy and DCI will build bikes for children in need

When: Tuesday, November 1st from 1:30 – 3 PM at Holmes Murphy (2727 Grand Prairie Pkwy, Waukee, IA 50263) and Wednesday, November 2nd from 1 – 3 PM at DCI (220 SE 6th St #200, Des Moines, IA 50309)


About the event: Holmes Murphy and DCI employees will be volunteering their time to build approximately 150 bikes for children in need. Volunteers will work together to build the easy-to-assemble bikes, and then professionals from Bike World will complete a safety check on all bikes before they are given to the children.

About the bikes: Bikes go hand in hand with being a kid, but for many children in our community, the prospect of owning their own bike is only a dream. Variety helps make that dream a reality by providing bikes, helmets, and locks to children in need throughout Iowa. The bikes directly impact a child and their family by instilling a sense of responsibility and facilitating the simple joy of riding a bike. Our Variety Bikes also help provide recreation and address the importance of exercise and good health. The Kids on the Go! safety program illustrates the significance of wearing a helmet, locking up your bike, and riding cautiously.

About Variety: Variety – the Children’s Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of children who are at risk, underprivileged, critically ill or living with special needs. Funding is provided to programs and initiatives that directly impact the well-being of children in our community. For more information on how you can be a part of our work, please visit
