Allina Health is teaming up with Free Bikes 4 Kidz for the 10th year in a row to collect donated bicycles for kids in need throughout Minnesota and western Wisconsin.

 Consider donating a gently used or new bike and ask family and friends if they have one they’d like to donate, including adaptive bikes for kids with disabilities. Donations will be accepted at Cambridge Medical Center on Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to1 p.m.

 “We want to help make it possible for every child to have a bike and participate in a healthy, fun and environmentally friendly activity and never has this goal been more important than during this coronavirus pandemic,” says Penny Wheeler, MD, Allina Health president and CEO. 

 Volunteers at the drop offs will be wearing masks, and Allina asks anyone dropping bikes off to do the same.

 Free Bikes 4 Kidz is also seeking volunteers to help clean and prepare the donated bikes for distribution. For more information and to volunteer visit

 Bikes will be distributed in the spring next year and kids who receive a bike will also get free bicycle helmets and bike safety information from Allina Health at the distribution events.
