Ride with "Z"
Zachary or "Z" as we all call him is a wonderful, lovable 15 year old young man. He has down syndrome, is non-verbal and autistic. He loves to be outside but has never had the opportunity to ride a bicycle. His mother is a wonderful woman who not only takes great care of her son, she also takes care of other children with special needs. I would love for the two of them to be able to have a special bicycle for Christmas. They need a dual tricycle to meet both their needs. A link for the perfect bicycle is attached. Hopefully we can raise enough for the trike, two helmets and shipping costs to get the trike to them! Thank you for donating!+ Read More
The bike arrived yesterday and we wasted no time getting them on it! I see many warm days spent riding this wonderful gift from all of you!
For all of those who have been waiting...it finally shipped! I can hardly contain my excitement for Z and his family! I wanted to take another opportunity to thank everyone who played a part in making this happen. From those who passed the campaign along, donated, crossed fingers, asked questions, contacted the company or however else you guys helped make this happen! Our community came together for this young man and his family and I appreciate all of you.
We reached our goal in only a few days. How amazing is that? The bike is on order and we can't wait for it to get here! I would like to thank everyone who contributed towards this wish whether it be passing it along, contacting the company for us to get a military discount or monetarily. Thank you to The Virginia Beach Police Benevolent Association for their generous donation and to each and every person who played a crucial role to make this happen. Thank you to the Virginia Beach Sheriff's Office for all their support in helping spread the word. I would also like to thank Al, Heidi and Wayne at Worksman Cycles for all their help!
We are $100 away from our goal! I can't believe the overwhelming support we have had from the community. We would like to thank everyone who has donated and also those whom have passed it along. Without all the support, we couldn't make this happen!
