I wanted to send you this video of Izzie’s inaugural bike ride that was held a couple of weeks ago in San Francisco. As you can see from the video, we had a big bike ride to celebrate her “new ride” and Izzie is completely in love with her new adaptive bicycle. Thank you so much for all of your help in giving Izzie the opportunity to ride along side her friends and family. This means the world to her and to our family to have Izzie be able to participate in physical activities along side other children. We truly do appreciate your involvement in the Great Bike Giveaway, which was our first step towards our journey of trying to achieve the dream of an adaptive bicycle for her. What had turned out to be a disappointment when she did not win in the raffle, ended up being something so much more when friends and family refused to see Izzie miss out on the opportunity of having her very own bike and showed their love and support of Izzie by putting together along with Freedom Concepts, a wonderful fundraiser that was successful in just four days.
Thank you so much for your help during this process and to Freedom Concepts for their participation in the Great Bike Giveaway and for helping to make the world for those with disabilities about inclusion and not seclusion.
