Meet the Kids: Kaytlynn

Kaytlynn

Kaytlynn is an active little girl that covers a lot of ground; that’s quite an accomplishment given her very restricted visual fields.

Traditional bicycles are too dangerous for her and the risk of falling is too great. However, a recumbent bike would allow her to safely ride bikes with her friends, but keep her safe by keeping her low to the ground. During the recent radiothon for adaptive bicycles, generous Variety donors were able to provide a recumbent bike for Kaytlynn and she

is back outside with her friends – exactly where she wants to be. Don’t all kids deserve to ride a bike?  Donate today at varietykc.org.

Meet the Kids: Aamir

Aamir

Amir has a rare chromosome deletion that causes cognitive impairment and mobility issues. He meets his challenges with a positive attitude and likes nothing more than to be engaged with his siblings and friends, especially outdoors. An adaptive bike would provide tremendous physical activity to help Amir strengthen his muscles, but the cost is not covered by insurance and it is too expensive for a young family.

During the recent radiothon for adaptive bicycles, caring Variety donors heard about Amir and his wish to ride bikes with his siblings and peers….and they made it happen!  Happy Trails Amir! Help Variety help all kids to Be Active, Be Social and Belong – donate today at varietykc.org.

Meet the Kids: Kaden

Kaden

Kaden is a bright little boy whose disability makes it impossible for his body to move at will, but it does not affect his brain. Adaptive bikes come in so many forms, for so many different disabilities. An assisted bike, with either a co-rider or someone pushing from behind, are ideal for so many kids like Kaden. Having a Freedom Concepts Tricycle would bring him one step closer to where he wants to be….outside playing and interacting with other kids. During our recent radiothon for adaptive bikes, generous Variety partners pulled together to get Kaden his bike – a childhood pastime that every child should get to experience.
