Review for Wheel To Walk Foundation, Portland, OR, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I work with adults and children with developmental disabilities. David is a client of mine who did not like physical activity, though his doctor recommended exercise for health reasons. Due to the cost, his family had not been able to purchase an adaptive adult tricycle for him. We completed an application with Wheel to Walk, requesting funding for such a trike for David. Within a few weeks of finishing the process, Sandy from Wheel to Walk notified us that he had been approved for funding and referred us to a local bike shop. David went into the shop and the manager welcomed him and showed him the beautiful blue adaptive trike that he had in stock. David was very serious and looked skeptical, and when the owner adjusted the seat and had David ride around the store, he burst into a big smile. Wheel to Walk worked with that shop and David was able to pick up his bike within a week. David has begun riding his bike around his neighborhood and looks forward to going on outing with his family, as he now has his own way of being active and engaging in the community. He's still not sure about wearing a helmet, but he obliges so that he can go out and ride! :)
