A Message From Brad Gawron

I have been with the Variety Club for nearly 10 years and in that time, I have met and worked some amazing volunteers, families and especially, the kids! However, my journey with Variety is just beginning! As the upcoming 2018 Telethon Chairman, I hope to be another integral part of an amazing group of people to raise over $1 Million for the Oshei Children's Hospital, The Variety Tent # 7 Robert Warner Rehab Center and other local children's charities. Please help me reach my goal, and let's do all that we can to continue to make sure that our children can stay happy and healthy as they grow and shine before our very eyes!

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).
