WE NEED 

YOUR HELP

As you know 2020 was a tough year for many and this has been true with Project Mobility. Our 3 largest fundraisers in 2020 were either postponed, changed to virtual or canceled. Everything we do at Project Mobility relies HEAVILY on these events. We are still trying to recover from such a tough year. 

Those with disabilities are still in need, actually in need more than ever with more families staying home and doing more outdoor/safe activities such as bike rides.

 

It may sound like such a simple activity but to those with mobility challenges (along with the hefty price tag of an adaptive bike) it makes it nearly impossible for them to enjoy the freedom of mobility without our help.

 

Adaptive bikes provide life changing mobility, strength, self-esteem and the ultimate freedom for children, adults and veterans with disabilities. Cycling restores the possibilities to those whom are often told by society that their life is about limitations.

 

Please consider joining us today!

Not comfortable with an in-person event yet? No worries! We will have a virtual option for those not ready yet or for those that live too far to attend in person. Click "Virtual" when registering! What is a virtual 5K? Click here to learn more!

*In-Person Event will be based on CDC and Local Guidelines at the time of the event

SATURDAY

Thank you for an amazing 5K! We are so happy to finally be able to come together for Hops for Hope 5K and Project Mobility. Because of our runners, donors, sponsors and volunteers we were able to raise enough to give 3 young men an adaptive bike at the Awards Ceremony. John, Blake and Brody will be riding around on their adaptive bikes and are finally able to enjoy the freedom of mobility thanks to you!
