Life Without Limits: Children with Mobility Disabilities Will Receive Their Own Adaptive Bike!

United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire (UCPIE) will be presenting ten refurbished adaptive bikes to children with mobility disabilities and an additional six children will be fit for their own custom adaptive bikes that will help them to meet physical therapy goals. Presentation will take place at Alcorn Adaptive Bike and Mobility Shop on Saturday, July 23rd at 10:00 a.m. 753 Williams Rd unit 783A, Palm Springs, CA 92264.

Riders discover a new found freedom on their custom bike and also join a larger community: from family bike rides, to taking off with friends, to many special events where riders experience a sense of accomplishment and connection.

“We are excited that our children receiving these bikes are then able to participate in the Tour de Palm Springs and be part of the largest team of individuals with special needs in a non-competitive cycling event in America, truly living life without limits.” Says Greg Wetmore, President and CEO of United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire.

Since 2012, UCPIE’s Team Freedom has been walking and riding in the Tour de Palm Springs to raise money for more children with mobility disabilities to receive a custom adaptive bicycle at no cost to their family.  Thanks to the generosity of our community, UCPIE has successfully raised funds to award a total of 97 bikes to date, by being a proud participating charity of Tour de Palm Springs.
