Jacob has cerebral palsy with muscle weakness, difficulty walking, and decreased coordination.
He enjoys playing outside with friends, but isn’t able to keep up with friends and siblings on his bike, even with assistance from his parents. He needs help with hills, leg positioning, and safety using the recumbent bike they purchased, which does not meet his needs.
His request is for the special accessories on the next size up bike, to help him enjoy riding with friends and to keep him safe.
By now, you probably know that Variety KC believes every child should have a bike that fits their needs – and Jacob will be getting what he needs! Help us to help all kids enjoy the rite of passage – bike riding! Donate today at VarietyKC.org/donate/
