Help Teens with Disabilities Get a Ride

Hearing that he didn't win an adaptive bike contest, we have set up a campaign to help Scott Curtiss get his 'ride.'

That's were you can help !

The first time Mikey Curtiss watched her son, Scott ride a bicycle, she cried tears of joy.  Scott has Autism and there is nothing more this mom would love more than for her son, and other children with special needs to have the same experiences that other kids have, like riding a bike. 

Scott who is 15 has never been able to ride a traditional two-wheeler because he has no center of balance.  His parents took him to an adaptive bike event offered by Advocate Christ Medical Center to an outdoor adaptive bike day provided by Project Mobility.  Scott finally found a bike that he could ride.

The Curtisses were touched beyond belief to learn of friends and family trying to help Scott win a bicycle. PLUS, Facebook friends and residents' efforts to help a boy they had never met to win a bicycle. 

Scotty, a student in Shepard High School's Autism program, had even picked out a color for his adaptive bike - red. Sadly, he didn't win, he came pretty darn close.

After seeing the look of pure joy and freedom on her son's face as he test rode the bike at The Bike Rack in St. Charles, Mikey, decided that no matter what, her son was going to get his bike.

Help us help Scott Curtiss get his adaptive bike.  Scott will be the first teen to get a bike from this campaign.  His friend Anthony will be the next teen on the list, his story will be posted soon.
