Fundraising for Xander J's Rifton Adaptive Tricycles

A few years ago, Xander was given an amazing opportunity to get a Rifton adapted tricycle. He quickly became proficient at riding it! It gave him such a sense of freedom he doesn't usually have since most of the time he uses a wheelchair. Unfortunately, he's outgrown his tricycle and a larger replacement is outside of our budget. His bike helped him tremendously with improving his overall health and increasing his endurance for therapy. It also helped to protect him from - and even help reverse - contractures (tightening and shortening of muscles around joints) which are a complication of cerebral palsy. Xander works SO hard to overcome mobility challenges every, single day. His tricycle has been instrumental in helping him make continued forward progress. In fact, he's currently working on standing and walking with a walker now in therapy! In large part, the progress he's made has been from having this specialty tricycle available to him. The tricycle is critical to helping him continue to improve his physical abilities, prevent future contractures, and maintain his overall health. Thank you so much for voting and donating! It means the world to us!

Xander was gifted a bike in the past, however he's outgrown it and a replacement bike is outside of our budget. The bike helped him tremendously with improving his overall heath and increasing his endurance for therapy. It also helped to protect him from - and even help reverse - contractures. He is learning to stand and walk now. The bike is critical to helping him continuing to improve his physical abilities, prevent future contractures, and maintain his overall health.
