Who we are and what we do

FRAANK is a small all-volunteer based non profit organization located in central
Arizona and dedicated to improving the lives of disadvantaged and troubled children.

Through their annual summer bicycle adventures, our volunteers attempt to advance
public awareness toward issues that
may negatively impact the well being of children
in the US as well as raise funds for local children and their families suffering from
medical illnesses and personal maladies.

FRAANK is a legally incorporated non profit organizatio
n chartered by the state of
Arizona.
100% of all contributions received through the FRAANK organization are
g
iven to the beneficiaries of that particular event.

"Any dream, whether it remains in the recesses of one's mind or springs forth into the
world and cries out to become a reality, exerts a strong pull on the soul."
