Cristian's Adaptive Tricycle Fund

Friends and Family, 

This past year I have been working at an Elementary School as an aide for a wonderful little boy named Cristian. Cristian is an incredibly energetic, lovable, and kind kid who suffers from the dibilitating condition called Cerebral Palsy. Due to CP, Cristian is mostly non-verbal and is dependant on a wheelchair and I help him get around on a daily basis. Cristian and I have become pretty good buddies and his joy, humor, and compassion have reminded me of why I went into education.

Earlier this year we had a non-profit group come to school that brought bikes, kayaks, and a rock climbing wall to school. Rock climbing and kayaking were a hit, but Cristian LOVED getting to ride the adaptive bike they had for him. He had such a big smile on his face the entire time. This is something that I wish for him every day. 

As part of the holiday season, I would love to give Cristian something that he will cherish for a long time. A Tricycle that is handicap accessible will be a game changer for Cristian during recess as he can interact with his classmates.  However, It is expensive to buy one of these bikes. I am asking all of my friends that as you continue giving this holiday season to consider donating towards this gift for Cristian.  I am hoping to raise $2,000 to buy the bike as a donation to him and his family.  Anything that you can give: $1 or $5 dollars will be extremely helpful.  If 200 of my amazing friends gave $10 dollars, we will reach our goal. 

Thank you in advance for your kindness and I know  that this gift will make a huge impact on a child who deserves so much.  

Happy Holidays,
