Review for Save the Kid Fund Inc, EAST LYME , CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been a few years now that I have known and worked with Frank Matovic and the board members of Save The Kid. I am truly blessed to have the opportunity to be a part of such an amazing group. My now 14 year old son with CP loves the bike he received from STK. He rides it all the time, competes in Special Olympics in the summer and rides in our driveway in the winter! Unable to ride a traditional bike, he has mastered the use of the AmTryke bike. It warms my heart to see how much joy it brings him, to be able to move and be independent. I have also experienced the joy of Team members who have received bikes from Save The Kid and Students from our special needs schools. These men and women are kind, compassionate and generous. Above all they understand what a difference a bike can make to a child or adult with disability's. They think of every little detail when they deliver their bikes and the children's lives are changed forever! Great group doing great things!

Review for Save the Kid Fund Inc, EAST LYME , CT, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My son is a Special Olympics athlete that competes in cycling. When he outgrew his trike this past year I was at a loss as to how I was going to afford a new bike and how long it would take for me to acquire the funds for a new one. At the same time, I was in the process of organizing a bike day event for the Special Needs Students at our school and surrounding communities. A friend steered me toward the president of STK and before long my biggest worries were over. I have been blessed by knowing the members of STK. This group does amazing things for kids in need. In our case it was a new adapted AmTryke bike for my son and one by one, all the children on the wish list that attended our bike day event last summer. Most of these children have never had the joy of riding a bike and now they are not only having fun but are getting much needed therapy as well. I can't say enough good things or thank them enough for all they have done for us. Truly, amazing people doing great things for kids in need!
