Goal Reached 10/01/2013
Owen is 7 yrs old and has Angelman’s Syndrome. Owen is a very happy and social child who loves to be outside with his sisters and neighbours who live on our court. He has mastered his plasma car but has pretty well outgrown it! We are looking into getting a Discovery bike for him so he can still participate in outdoor fun with all the kids on our street. We know of other Angelman’s families whose kids are enjoying their new sense of freedom with their adaptive bikes! We feel this would open up a new level of independence for him and our family. If there is any possibility of Owen being considered to receive help to receive a bicycle it would be greatly appreciated!
What makes this story even more special are the wonderful donors who selected Owen to be the recipient of their fundraising efforts. The LapDogs Cycle Club raised over $2800 which went towards a new adapted bike for Owen. They also gave Owen a Lapdogs jersey and hat which he proudly sports as he rides his new bike with his friends and family.
