Today was an exciting day for Gabe. He has always wanted to be independent and ride a bike but due to his disability, "spastic diplegia" he has not been able to do so, since he has no range of motion for pedaling the conventional manner and hand bikes were too expensive. He is also unable to drive a conventional car and having an adaptive one is far too expensive and he would rather have the bike for his health. We live near a lovely bike path which goes very close to his employment. We were referred recently to AMBUCS Vermont Friends and attended the bike fitting this morning! This means so much to Gabe and his family since he has recently been hired to work not far from home and this will allow him to get himself to and from work independently. We are hoping that friends and family will hear about his quest for independence and assist as they can in this important fundraiser to get him onto those wheels and to work.
