A bike for Sophie

40078924_1561053466989135_r.jpeg40078924_1561053520211860_r.jpegMy daughter Sophie is a beautiful little girl who has Right Hemiplegic Cerebral Palsy. She is not able to walk without assistance of a walker or other support. She has weak and tight muscles in her lower extremities and has decreased endurance when walking distances. Sophie has trialed the Freedom Concepts Adventurer Series AS2000 bike. Through the use of this tricycle, Sophie may be able to show improvement with her gait pattern and endurance when in her walker.  She would be able to work on her leg strength while pedaling. The benefits from using an adaptive tricycle on a regular basis are numerous. The reciprocal motion of this tricycle is an important and necessary part of gait training for her.  It also improves motor planning while working on improving her lower extremity strength, endurance, stamina, independence and range of motion. It will get her out of her wheelchair and give her the freedom to access her community and peers while having fun but also benefiting from the exercise. This tricycle can be grown and adjusted to fit Sophie for a long period of time.  
Unfortunately this bike is not covered by any government funding and I need the help for this purchase.
Please consider helping me with the purchase of this wonderful bike for Sophie.
