Meet our Spring Classic 2018 Nominee: Barry Adelman


Meet our Honoree, Barry A. Adelman!

Barry has been an active supporter of CYCLE Kids since 2011 and has served on its Board of Directors in recent years. Barry is passionate about the Mission of CYCLE Kids, which is to strengthen the emotional and physical health of children. Since the founding of CYCLE Kids in 2004, CYCLE Kids has impacted more than 25,000 elementary school children in primarily underserved communities by providing an innovative cycling program. Through the simple act and fun of learning how to ride a bike, children are inspired to make healthier lifestyle and eating choices, build self-confidence, develop emotionally, and achieve greater academic success. Our program impacts not only the children, but also their families and local communities.

Barry is a Partner at the law firm of Friedman Kaplan Seiler & Adelman LLP and has been an Adjunct Professor of Law at the University of Michigan Law School for more than 15 years. CYCLE Kids is proud to honor Barry for his dedication and commitment to our Mission.
