I have a disease called Lesch-Nyhan Syndrome and I'm unable to walk or run like the rest of my family. I use a manual wheelchair for all of my mobility. Most of the time I am able to wheel myself where I need to get to like at school or in the store. But, there are just so many places I can't go on my own like our local shopping mall - they've got carpeting and my wheels sink easily - someone has to push me.
I would love to be able to go more places with my family like on bike rides but some times its just not that easy because my dad usually has to drag me behind his bike in a trailer. Well, dragging my 105 pounds isn't always easy especially with all the hills we have around here. Once we get where we're going then I'm still stuck in the trailer and can't go anywhere because my wheelchair is back at home.
All of the money I am raising will go toward purchasing the Firefly and getting some foam inserts for my tires so I don't have to worry about getting flats. Because if I'm going to be going more places I don't have the dexterity or the ability to change flat tires until my dad gets home.
So, can you please help me? I will love you long time if you do.
