BENEFITING: VT Friends of AMBUCS

EVENT: VT AMBUCS Adapted Bike Fitting 2017

EVENT DATE: May 06, 2017

THE STORY:

Our passion is to create a world where everyone who chooses, can ride a bike! Help us make the kids on our Vermont Wish List dream come true. These kids attended our bike fitting event and were fitted by Physical and Occupational therapists to ensure the bike is well fitted and has all the items medically necessary for them to be successful. As soon as we get the funding we will order their bikes and they will be riding with their friends and family. Today, over 56 million people in the United States self-identify as having a disability. That’s nearly 1 in 5 of us. The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that nearly half of all adults with disabilities get no aerobic physical activity, an important health behavior to help avoid chronic diseases such as heart disease, stroke, diabetes, or cancer. In fact, people with disabilities are 3x more likely to have those diseases. Children with disabilities are 38% more likely to be obese than others their age. One of the leading causes of those disturbing statistics is limited access to a means of exercise. Recipients, parents, and therapists report that the Amtryke therapeutic tricycle provides increased strength, mobility, and coordination as well as self-confidence and positive peer interaction. That all adds up to great exercise, the opportunity to be outdoors and just plain fun.
