We at Project Mobility have been giving away adaptive bikes since 2009 through our Holiday Adaptive Bike Giveaway!
In 2013 at Project Mobility's first Everybody Rides fundraiser we decided to continue the Holiday Adaptive Bike Giveaway throughout the entire year, creating Project Mobility's Adaptive Bike Giveaway! It all began on our Facebook page in 2013, we asked families in need of an adaptive bike to tell their story. The child with the most “likes” would be the winner of the bike worth more than $4,000. We would then award the adaptive bike to the winner at our first annual Everybody Rides.
We decided we were going to continue our Adaptive Bike Giveaway at the first Hops for Hope 5K back in 2017. Since then we have been giving an adaptive bike away during the Awards Ceremony. The participants of Hops for Hope 5K love seeing first hand where their money is going towards and how it helps our nonprofit organization.
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.
