Carl II or C2 as we call him is 11 almost 12, and he has a number of diagnoses mental and physical that prevent him from doing activities typical of his age and body type. My husband and I were crafty enough to be able to adapt a child's tricycle so he could learn to ride a bike, and LOVES it. However, he is now tall enough and limited just enough that we need to get a teen sized tricycle for him so he can bike in cul de sac or even to pool with us instead of always driving or using his stroller.
We are recipients of an Advanced Mobility push chair from Ainsley's Angels that I use to take C2 on my runs with me. It has been an absolute joy for him, and relief for me to have the chair to get him on and off beaches and to our local pool.
We love our jogger chair so much that I can't bear to double dip from Ainsley's Angels to get him a bike and risk someone else not getting one....so we decided to work TOGETHER with AA to raise the funds needed for an off the shelf trike and adding the necessary mods to make it safe and usable for C2.
