BENEFITING: National AMBUCS

ChrisandNicole Humphrey

THE STORY:

We recently submitted an application on Sophia's behalf to the AMBUCS wishlist, which is a charitable organization whose mission is to assist disabled children in getting adaptive tricycles. They approved our application and have asked us to partner with them in raising the funds to get Sophia her own customized ride. We need to raise $940.00 (this would cover our part of the bike and shipping). Since coming home 2 years ago, Sophia's gross motor skills have increased in leaps and bounds. She went from barely being able to stand independently for more than 20 seconds to (independently) running through the house. Sophia has an official diagnosis of Ataxic Cerebral Palsy. Because of her ataxia she is unable to balance herself and most likely will never be able to ride a typical bicycle like her peers and siblings. On a therapeutic level this tryke will help to strengthen her core, enabling her to more quickly achieve her long term physical therapy goals. This tryke will be adapted to fit her specific needs and afford her the opportunity of taking part in an activity that all children love- riding a bike (who didn't love the wind blowing through their hair?). She desperately longs to be part of what her friends and siblings are doing. This tryke will help her to socially fit in and to be part of the fun, rather than watching from the sidelines. We are so excited to see how quickly we are able to raise the funds for our little girl with a need for speed. Sophia is amazing, I can not wait to see her dream for a bike become a reality. ** PLEASE NOTE: Donations made on this site will go directly to AMBUCS to fund Sophia's custom tryke. Anything in excess of $940 will go to AMBUCS to fund another childs tryke. When donating you can choose NOT to cover the cost of fees (so the entire donation will go to Sophia) by clicking on the gray "edit" button and changing the drop down amount to 0. All donations made on this site are tax deductable**

Jeff has an adaptive recumbent trike because his brain injury left him with balance issues very similar to Sophia's. As adoptive AND adaptive parents, we love this! I hope she gets many years of joy out of her trike! 2 months ago
