"We are so excited for him to have his own bike!"

River B., 4, Akron
Autism

He is a very busy four-year-old who never stops moving. He loves cars, trucks, books, running everywhere and very fast. He loves to be outside as much as possible. He doesn't like the word "no" at all and gets extremely upset if he can't get something done the way he wants. The bike would benefit him being outside and help his balance and coordination.

"Kyona will be all smiles once she gets her own bike."

Kyona W., 16, Kent
Cerebral Palsy

Kyona loves to be outside but there is little for her to do due to her condition. This adaptive bike would help her and our family enjoy being outside because we know Kyona will be all smiles and get a chance to really enjoy the outdoors. Kyona likes to joke around, talk to her friends and family on the phone and draw. Kyona's passion is to work and be as independent as she can.

Impact lives with one bike today!

Every child deserves a chance to learn how to ride a bike – to feel the freedom and fun with friends and family. For thousands of central Ohio children with disabilities, the access, cost, and training for the right adaptive equipment is out of reach.

Adaptive Sports Connection provides specialized adaptive bikes for children. Working with a volunteer team of physical therapists and cycling enthusiasts, we offer bike evaluations for children, purchase adaptive bikes, put together the bikes, deliver the bikes, and teach children how to ride the bikes.

The joy on the faces of the children and parents is priceless. Last year we gave away 70 adaptive bikes to children with physical and cognitive disabilities.

This year we hope to give away 400 adaptive bikes through our Boundless Challenge Bike Giveaway for Kids.

Bikes restore a sense of possibility and ability to those whom are often told by society that their life is about limitations and disability. Help us in giving the gift of health, independence, and the freedom of mobility through adaptive cycling.

Give the gift of health, independence, and the freedom of mobility!
