Get a Kart for a Kool Kid

Together we can raise money to purchase a unique bicycle for one awesome child. Ian is a 12 year-old with childhood disintegrative disorder which is on the autism spectrum. Ian loves to go for bike rides, but is unable to do so because his kart was stolen. Ian rides a kart, which is a three wheeled recumbent bike because he is unable to balance due to the loss of coordination caused by childhood disintegrative disorder. Before his kart was stolen, Ian and his mother went for nightly bike rides and he was able to ride with his friends in the neighborhood. This provided the sensory input that he desperately craved and included him in the community. The theft of Ian's bike has been a huge loss for him and his mother. With this kart Ian will be able to ride both on and off road and he would like to start riding with the local bike club.

Ian does not have the skills to balance on a skateboard, skates, or scooter either so a kart is the only way he can ride with his friends. Also insurance does not cover the cost of adaptive bicycles.
