BENEFITING: CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT FUTURES
ORGANIZER: CENTER FOR INDEPENDENT FUTURES
EVENT DATE: May 25, 2014
Center for Independent Futures (CIF) is proud to announce that on Sunday, May 25th, 2014 at 7:00 a.m., bikers representing Team CIF will join thousands of other bikers on Lake Shore Drive. The entire length of Lake Shore Drive will be closed to traffic and open only to cyclists!
Team CIF is a community of adults with and without disabilities who are participating in the Bike the Drive to raise funds for Center for Independent Futures. CIF serves adults with disabilities including Autism, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Paulsey and Epilepsy. I have enjoyed being a part of the CIF team for about the last seven years. In that time I have seen dreams including litteracy, employment, a full social life and moving out of an institution or parents home and into an apartment realized! These are opportunities that many of us take for granted and are not available to many with disabilities. Illinois does less to support adults with disabilities than almost any other state in the country. This has created a great need for a non-profit organization to provide the support one out of five Americans need!
To help me raise funds that allow folks with disabilities lead full lives please click on my name or pic toward the bottom of this page.
Thanks for helping us work toward creating a state where having a disability doesn't mean living in poverty and isolation!
