An Attainable Dream
While most kids his age are out riding their bikes, Levi has for most of his young life had to use a gait or stroller to step outside—a result of his limited trunk mobility, which stems from living with spastic quadriplegic Cerebral Palsy. The idea of riding his very own bike someday seemed to be an unattainable dream for Levi.
Thanks to Levi’s physical therapist, Brittany, reaching out to WNC Bridge Foundation, we were able to outfit the young boy with a brand-new trike through our Children’s Services Fund program. This trike allows Levi the freedom to ride along with his friends and serves to assist in his ability to learn additional skills such as balancing and lower limb and trunk strengthening. Levi can even ride to visit nearby family members now with the help of his new tricycle. Through our donors’ generosity to the Children’s Services Fund, WNC Bridge Foundation can make dreams like Levi’s a reality for children across our region.
