Growing up, Christa made sure that Nevaeh got all the therapy she could. Regular physical therapy and occupational therapy helped Nevaeh learn to crawl, but by the age of four, she was still unable to walk. Christa was looking for something to give Nevaeh the reciprocal “one foot in front of the other” motion when she saw a photo of an adaptive bicycle on social media.
After doing some digging, Christa learned about Freedom Concepts. She contacted Jaydene Lowe, Freedom Concepts’ Southeast Territory Manager, and from there the fundraising process began. Partnering with Variety of Georgia, Christa began to fundraise online and even held an event at Henry’s Louisiana Grill. Before long, she had raised more than enough money to buy Nevaeh a Freedom Concepts bike and ended up donating $1,000 towards an adaptive bike for another child.
“Christa is one of the most motivated mommas I’ve ever met,” said Jaydene. “She will do anything she possibly can to make sure Nevaeh gets what she needs, and always focuses on her abilities instead of her disabilities.”
Prior to Nevaeh being born, Christa was a dedicated triathlete, but had to give it up to take care of Nevaeh. Now that Nevaeh has a bike that works for her, it is an activity they can do together.
