BENEFITING: VT Friends of AMBUCS
EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017
Fiona is an almost six-year-old who enjoys taking walks beside her bike-riding sister. Fiona has a rare chromosomal syndrome that makes balance and mobility (and regular bikes) tricky for her. The morning of our two-and-a-half hour drive to the bike fitting, Fiona signed "bike" again and again. She was super excited. When she got onto a trike, she immediately mobilized it backwards and then forward, smiling. We had to leave the trike with the techs, but the next day, she signed "bike" again with a smile. We, her parents, are grateful that AMBUCS is giving her this opportunity. Bonus: all donations go not just to Fiona but to the whole VT event fundraising pool. It was awesome watching the other kids motor around the gymnasium in their new wheels.
