Wheel Fun Rentals Offers Free Rentals to Nonprofit Organizations in the Greater Chicago Area

June 09, 2014 // Franchising.com // Chicago, IL - Wheel Fun Rentals announces it will be offering free recreational rentals this summer to nonprofit organizations in the Greater Chicago area. Between June 11th and August 27th, Wheel Fun Rentals will donate rental equipment, completely free of charge, to two charities every Wednesday.

Officially named "Wednesdays with Wheel Fun Rentals," this program offers local charities their choice of bicycles, four-wheel Surreys, low-to-the-ground specialty cycles, and kayaks at Wheel Fun Rentals' Foster Beach location in Chicago. The program accommodates two nonprofit groups each Wednesday with up to 20 participants in each group. Reservations are required, and dates book up fast. Nonprofits are encouraged to make their reservation as soon as possible by emailing wheelfunrentals2@msn.com.

"We already offer free recreational rentals to Big Brothers Big Sisters volunteers, and donate gift certificates to local schools and charity organizations," said Dwight Bratholt, local Franchise Owner. "But I'd like to give back even more to the great community of Chicago."

Covered with white sand, Foster's lakefront beach is something you can't afford to miss. Green picnic areas and paved bike trails give everybody in the group something fun to do at all times. Amenities include a beach house with food concessions, kayak rentals, and restrooms. Bike, Surrey, and specialty cycle rentals are available in the main parking lot. Nonprofit groups have access to the full fleet of equipment for up to two hours, so try them all! A popular dog beach is also located at the northeast end of Foster Beach, so feel free to bring your furry friends.

Hit the paved trails on a three- or six-person Surrey, a low-to-the-ground Deuce Coupe, Chopper, or Quad Sport, or a classic cruiser bike, mountain bike, or kids bike. Wheel Fun Rentals at Foster Beach's boat rentals include one- and two-seat kayaks. Nonprofits, don't miss this unique way to explore Chicago's Foster Beach for free!

The "Wednesdays with Wheel Fun Rentals" program is the perfect opportunity for nonprofits to thank their volunteers, show appreciation to donors, or use as a group and teambuilding event for staff. Of course, kids are welcome, too! Children of any age are permitted to use kayaks with a chaperone that is at least 18 years old. Children 12 and older may use kayaks without a chaperone on board. Reminder: only two nonprofits are booked each Wednesday and reservations fill up fast. Nonprofit organizations should reserve their spot today by contacting Wheel Fun Rentals at wheelfunrentals2@msn.com. For more information about the program, please call (701) 367-7704.
