THANK YOU TO EVERYONE THAT DONATED!
ANYMORE DONATIONS WE GET ARE GOING TO GO TO ANOTHER CHILD. OUR GOAL WAS TO SURPRISE 4 CHILDREN WITH THEIR VERY OWN ADAPTIVE BIKES AND NOW WE HAVE UPDATED IT TO 5 CHILDREN.
HELP MAKE THIS POSSBILE!
Imagine being 8 years old and looking out your front window as all the kids in the neighborhood are riding their bikes down the street, you couldn't join them, until now...
It was Christmas Eve in 2009, the snow was coming down as our caravan of people were driving to a house in Geneva to help us surprise a special little girl named Rosie.
We will never forget that day, we had the Chicago news stations from CBS, ABC, and NBC filming us as we all went up to their front door wearing Santa Hats as the neighbors were peeking out there windows.
We always get some of the most amazing reactions, but this time something was different...
Rosie’s mom and dad were in tears as she pedaled a bike for the first time, it was Tommy her older brother who brought tears to the eyes of over 40 adults, even the TV crews were all choked up. He looked at all of us and said, now Rosie doesn’t have to watch out the window as we ride our bikes, she can ride with us! Not a dry eye in the house! It was just an awesome moment!

So here we are 8 years later, Riley is a freshman in college and has grown up to be as amazing of a young lady, as we knew she would be.
Our goal this year is to make the dreams of 4 children with disabilities come true this holiday season.
Meet the 4 children!
“Oh, the Places You’ll Go…Our daughter Lilia Fisher is an 11 year old girl who has faced many obstacles in her life. At age nine, Lilia was the 14th person in the world to be diagnosed with GATAD2B-Associated Neurodevelopmental Disorder, also known as GAND-- a syndrome that results in both cognitive and physical disabilities. Lilia has battled severe hypotonia her whole life.

“In many ways, Owen Paleczny is like any other 10-year-old boy – he loves to swim, play outside, hang out with his friends, loves Captain America and the Ninja Turtles. But unlike a lot of other 10-year-old boys, Owen was born at 24 weeks weighing just 1 pound 13 ounces. He spent the first 4 months of his life in the hospital. Because of his early arrival, Owen developed Cerebral Palsy.”

“As new parents we always wondered what each stage of our child’s life would look like, when would he talk, walk, drink from a cup, ride a bicycle…it was only after Liam’s diagnoses of Cerebral Palsy that we stopped questioning WHEN and started asking IF.

“Tynan is a 7-year-old boy with an exuberant personality and cheeky sense of humor. He is silly, kind, and adventurous like many kids his age. However, Tynan has overcome tremendous adversity since birth. He was born with a rare disease called S turge-Weber Syndrome.”
