Taga Bike For Callen Chinn

Callen Chinn is truely one in a million. He was born on   April 6, 2015 .  When he was just 4 months old his parents took him to the ER for what they thought was just a high fever and flu like symptoms.  After many, MANY tests, and even more sleepless nights at Children's Hospital in Oakland, the Chinn family told that he had an extremely rare genetic disorder called Spino Cerabela Ataxia 28.  The disorder is so rare in fact that only 5 other people IN THE WORLD are known to have had the same disorder.  This disorder is a mitochondrial disorder and thus affects how his cells are able to use and store energy.  He has very low muscle tone, has trouble regulating his body temperature, gets fatigued easily and has extremely low vision.  However, he is also happy, smiley and very silly.  He has two amazing older brothers who love him to pieces and two of the most incredible parents in the world.  The Chinn family is very active and love doing things together as a family, including going on bike rides.  In order for them to be able to continue to do this together they need a special bike that can meet Callen's needs.  The TAGA bike was created for children with special needs and their families.  It will allow Callen to participate in the activites that his family and brothers all enjoy together.  Please consider donating to help the Chinn family continue their active, family centered lifestyle!
