Fundraising for Owen M's Freedom Concepts Discovery Series

Owen has quadriplegia cerebral palsy. He is an active child but so far his trike trials are the only way he can move about his world outside and get important exercise that helps his overall digestion, sleep and fun! His loan trike will be going back soon (for another child to use) and he currently uses it most days. We don’t know how to duplicate its benefits without one.

Thank you again, to all of Owen's supporters. He loves to go for trike rides. Your donation and vote have made such a wonderful gift for him. Thank you for helping him explore and play.

Thank you to all of the supporters and to the Great Bike Giveaway! Owen's trike arrived today and he is so excited to get out for a ride! We know two other families in our area that are also getting adaptive bikes (thanks to The Great Bike Giveaway) and it is such a joyful time. We can't wait to let our kids enjoy the outdoors together with the freedom that this allows. Thank you all, again and again. I would like to say thank you to the friends and family and beyond who voted and donated for Owen. It means the world to him and us. He is really a wonderful kid and this is something that creates a sparkle in his eyes. I will update with a photo later. Thank you.

Update for our supporters. Owen is in the exciting stage of measuring for his new trike! We can't wait. It will be a while before it gets here (has to have special parts added and be built). Thank you again for all of the support for him and other children on this site.

THANK YOU! Owen has achieved the fundraising goal! Thank you so much for the votes and donations. We are feeling so blessed. Owen loves loves loves to ride. This is going to be the best thing for him. I honestly can't think how to say thank you enough.

Thank you for all of the votes and for the donations! Owen is over the halfway mark towards his own trike! This means so much to him (and his parents). Thank you all for your kindness. This morning he saw a woman ride her trike by in the early morning and she had a light. He told me, "one day maybe I could get a light and ride in the dark". lol.

Wow! Thank you so much for the donations and votes. Owen is very excited to have his own bike one day. In our area, we are very lucky to get to borrow items from our health unit. It is always sad when we have to give them back so soon. The trike/bike is one thing that feels like a child item. It is so much fun for him to get out and explore in something that isn't so obviously a therapy tool or mobility device. We really appreciate the support. Thank you.

Owen says, "thank you".

Owen loves to ride. We can't believe the benefit it has made in our short loan period (from our local health unit). It helps a great deal with his overall emotional well being and also with his ability to move his legs when playing on the floor. He uses a wheelchair (power or manual) and going through the neighbourhood with his loaner trike he feels more approachable to other kids his age. He is so proud and happy to ride.
