Review for Wheel To Walk Foundation, Portland, OR, USA
Wheel to Walk provided our daughter Rachel with a handicap appropriate bicycle so she could get some aerobic exercise & join the rest of the family on bike rides. Rachel has cerebral palsy and walks with a walker & leg braces. The only bike she could use was a Rifton special needs bike, but those cost around $2,000. There was just no way for our family of five to dedicate that kind of financial resource to a bike. Our physical therapist team told us about the Wheel to Walk foundation, but I didn't didn't think such a pricey item would ever be awarded. We were delighted when we heard we had been awarded, and just in time for Rachel to get her bike for Christmas, just like other kids who get bikes for Christmas.
It used to be hard for Rachel to get exercise with her disability, now she can ride her bike to maintain cardiovascular health and achieve a healthy weight. Wheel to Walk has made Rachel's dream come true. Way to go Wheel to Walk! A Million Thanks!
