Aurora has a partial trisomy of the 16th chromosome. She was diagnosed at birth with the rare genetic disorder that among being mentally handicap, limits her physical abilities that she is not able to ride a "normal" bike. Recently we entered a contest on facebook run by the Friendship Circle of Michigan where the top 14 vote getters would win a bike. The first kid would get the first pick out of the 14 bikes available, and the second the next choice, and so on. Thanks to all our dear families, friends, friends of friends, and strangers, we ended up in the top 14!! Unfortunately, we placed 13th, and ended up with a bike that Aurora won't be able to ride because of her physical limitations.
So this is the next step. Here you can make donations and give a little girl the chance to do something so many of us take for granted: Riding a bike. Anything you can do to help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much in advance!
If you like to see the kind of bike we are hoping to get just follow this link:
Believe me. This is the stuff kids' dreams are made of. Every little bit will go a long way!
