#GivingWheelsDay 2019 is Local Motion’s inaugural four-day online fundraising campaign from September 11 - 14, 2019, in support of purchasing and deploying a child-size adaptive cycle!
Why? Because the social and wellness benefits of bicycling are profound, and we believe that all children should be able to enjoy them. But we need adaptive bikes - and they don’t come cheap. The handcycle purchased this year will be used statewide in our school bike skill education programs for years to come!
Donate today so that no Vermont children are left watching from the sidelines of our school programs. Any funds raised over the fundraising goal will be used to purchase additional adaptive equipment to accommodate demand.
Why an adaptive bike?
It’s easy to take cycling for granted. To many of us, balancing on two wheels and turning the pedals around with our feet comes as naturally as breathing in and out.
But it isn’t that way for everyone. Nearly every school that participates in our Bike Smart bike skill education program has at least one student who requires an adaptive bicycle. Without it, they can’t participate alongside their peers.
Thank you to prior and current Local Motion Board members for getting us partway there already! Help us get the rest of the way!
A special thank you to RAD Innovations for a generous discount off the price of the handcycle.
