The Variety Ride

The Variety Ride

About This Campaign

Variety has teamed up with Slow Roll Buffalo for the first-ever Variety Ride on August 26th! Presented by Kaleida Health, the kid-friendly program is packed with excitement from start to finish. With pre- and post-parties on Carlton Street between Locust and Mulberry and a unique route that highlights important Variety landmarks in the City of Buffalo, riders will see first-hand how supporting Variety – the Children’s Charity of Buffalo and WNY helps kids be kids in our community.

The ride is free, but we are asking riders to pledge a minimum of $50 for adults and $25 for kids. Sign up as an individual or form a team to boost your fundraising power! Please limit teams to 8 riders.

Registration begins at 10 AM, along with pre-ride festivities including an Adaptive Bike presentation. The Police Athletic League will be distributing bike helmets to kids and others who need a helmet while supplies last and will be raffling off a new bicycle after the ride. The 9-mile ride departs at 12 noon and returns to Carlton St. around 1 PM for the awards and after-party. Tom's Pro Bike will give out awards for the top individual, team, and corporate team fundraisers after the ride. Stick around for the after-party to catch some live music by Preach Freedom and Connect and enjoy a selection of food and beverages from local food trucks.

Find parking at the BNMC Parking Lot at 640 Ellicott or on side streets (pay attention to the signs).

Variety the Children's Charity of Buffalo and Western New York

Campaign to Support Variety the Children's Charity of Buffalo and Western New York

Variety - the Children's Charity of Buffalo and Western New York supports children in our region who are facing illness, disability, or disadvantage with a range of programs from life-saving medical interventions to enrichment programs in sports and the arts. Our flagship event is our annual Variety Kids Telethon, one of the nation's longest-running, locally-produced telethons. Funds from the Telethon go to Women & Children's Hospital of Buffalo and over a dozen local children's organizations in Western New York every year.


Our mission is to transform, uplift and enrich the lives of children facing illness, disability or disadvantage in Western New York.
Our vision is to be the most trusted and effective children's charity in Western New York. 
Our promise is to be a faithful steward of public funds and a compassionate advocate for the most vulnerable children in our region.
