Landon has Down Syndrome and Cerebral Palsy, he also has a tremendous amount of spirit and energy! He primarily uses a wheelchair and sometimes a walker for mobility, but an adaptive bike would give him so much more than that – it would give him independence and opportunities for inclusion. This year Variety KC held a bike drive radiothon with 102.1 and funded bikes for so many excited Variety Kids. Then Danny O’Neill from The Roasterie took a fundraising ride to Alaska and funded even more! Let’s make sure every child gets a chance to Be Active, Be Social, and Belong – on a bike!

Some folks were surprised when they heard Zoe wants to ride a bike, after all, Zoe’s spinal bifida prevents her from using her legs. Fortunately there are hand pedaled adaptive bikes for young ladies like Zoe and that’s exactly what Variety KC’s generous donors got for her! Now Zoe doesn’t have to look out her window at all the kids in her complex playing outside – she is out there with them! This has been an amazing year for our adaptive bike drive, with so many Variety Kids now outdoors and riding with their family and friends. Doesn’t every child deserve something as simple as the joy of riding a bike? Help us make that happen, donate today at varietykc.org.
