Levi and his family just want a way to get some healthy exercise together! Diagnosed with Angelman Syndrome, Levi has severe developmental delays and motor challenges. This means that activities such as basketball or various sports are not a possibility for Levi. However, when he gets on an adaptive bike – he can really move! Levi used to have a tryke at home, but he outgrew it. He has access to a bike a school and in therapy, but really needs something similar at home in order to get the physical exercise that would greatly benefit him. One of the biggest setbacks we have seen as a result of this pandemic, the loss of access to therapies and equipment used at now closed schools. An adaptive tryke built for Levi’s size and needs would make it possible for the whole family to participate in a healthy, fun activity. Variety KC understands! Levi will now have access to a bike of his own, one he can use to engage with his family and neighbors, plus get the exercise he so needs. Don’t all kids deserve to have a bike? Please help us to make this possible by donating to Variety KC today. wwwvarietykc.org/donate.
They say money doesn’t buy happiness – but you know, it does! Because it can buy a bike!
