Fundraising for Sam B's Mobility & Access Duet

Sam has a rare, degenerative disease that has impacted his physical mobility. Sam loves to be on the move, but the combined effects of his Peroxisome Biogenesis Disorder and chemotherapy from a leukemia diagnosis at age 6 have left his body unable to use even the most supportive of adaptive tricycles. As Sam’s parents, we love being out and about with Sam, and a bike that allowed him the feeling of movement would be pure joy for all of us.

Dear Friends, YOU did it! In the efforts to get votes for Sam, he met his fundraising goal and will be the recipient of a Mobility & Access Duet! Your support means the world to us. Thank you for taking time to vote, donate and share in Sam’s honor. Although the contest doesn’t report how many votes received, we felt the love as we watched Sam’s name move up the leaderboard prior to meeting the goal. It was never the intention to have people donate, but we are humbled that, collectively, our friends came together to provide such a gift. We look forward to family bike rides with Sam and the ability to be out and about Lincoln to explore and enjoy our community together. This summer, and all those to come, will be that much more special because of you!

Wow! We are overwhelmed with the votes and donations Sam has received in the first few days of launching the request for help. A big thank you to those who have voted, shared, and contributed on Sam's behalf. Right now, Sam is 6th on the leaderboard for votes toward getting the Mobility & Access Duet. Since enrolling Sam in the contest, I have a renewed sense of hope and peace knowing how much Sam is loved. Thank you for supporting our efforts to provide Sam a way to engage in active recreation with our family and those who help us care for him. ~Shannon
