Our singular focus is to provide adaptive bikes to children and young adults with special needs such as Spina Bifida, Cerebral Palsy, Battens Disease, Charge Syndrome, Down Syndrome, Hydrocephalus, Autism, etc. These families face the Challenge of therapy sessions & specialized equipment costs, lack of physical & mental strength, confidence, and most importantly inclusion of common activities such as riding bikes together.
We will do whatever, whenever, however,
to get him what he needs.
He’s a huge motivator for us.

What started in 2008 as a “Bikes for Christmas” project, quickly turned into a year round endeavor. Over 400 bikes have been delivered since 2008, and it’s proven to Change the lives of the children and their families. Change is possible because of the individual donors and corporations who have so graciously donated to the foundation.
The fact that he can use something and be
independent with it carries over to trying things
that are a little harder and then it also helps
build up that strength.

Something that we never stop say is that These Bikes Change Lives. These children are defying odds, changing their paths, and setting their lives in motion once they start riding the adaptive bikes. Not only is the child’s life changed, but the families, friends, and donors are touched by the stories we share, thus sparking a Revolution.
This is a very selfless family running a transparent
charity. I have cried more tears of joy watching their
delivery day videos. I know exactly where my
contributions are going and I know they help make
a difference in a child's life. In a family's life.
