Episode 14: Adaptive Bike Program

Jared Perkins, Chief Operating Officer of the Children’s Clinics talks about a new program in Tucson providing adaptive bicycles to children with chronic illnesses.  Believing that play is fundamental to health and wellbeing, and that every child can be an athlete despite developmental abilities, the Children’s Clinics has partnered with Ambucs to donate adaptive bicycles individually customized to meet the special needs of their patients.  In it’s first year, the program is on track to provide over 100 children with their own adaptive bikes.  Visit the Adaptive Recreation Fund website to learn more about the program or make a donation.
