Make a donation for Giving Tuesday, and your gift will keep on giving for years to come!
At Easter Seals’ summer camps, kids with physical disabilities get to discover what they are capable of in a fully accessible, inclusive environment. They can stay away from home, make new friends, and try out a wide range of adapted sports and activities. This Giving Tuesday, we’re raising funds to give our campers a new way to push their boundaries at Easter Seals camps: ADAPTIVE CYCLING!
Many children with physical disabilities never get the opportunity to ride a bike that is modified for their needs and abilities. An adaptive bicycle can easily cost up to several thousand dollars. With the exceptional cost of basic mobility and accessibility equipment, adaptive bicycles are often considered a luxury item that is beyond the reach of many Easter Seals families.
Mark your calendars! Giving Tuesday is November 29, 2022.
The Benefits of Adaptive Bikes
Adaptive bikes are more than just a recreational tool for physical activities, they also provide emotional regulation, freedom, participation/social interaction, independence, and inclusion. They are modified with adjustments that make it easier for people with physical disabilities to participate and enjoy cycling. They can also help their riders improve their balance, circulation, and endurance, strengthen gross and fine motor skills, increase their range of motion, and so much more.
This Giving Tuesday, you can help Easter Seals campers fulfill their dream of riding a bike on their own for the first time!
Your gift will go directly towards giving Easter Seals campers the opportunity to experience the freedom, joy, and sheer thrill of riding a bike on their own. With your help, we can purchase new adaptive tricycles that campers can enjoy for years to come.
Our goal is to raise $10,000 to purchase three tricycles for the upcoming summer 2023 camp season. To make this initiative even more exciting, Motion, a long-time partner and supporter of Easter Seals, is stepping up to double the impact of your gift. Motion will generously match all Giving Tuesday gifts to Easter Seals, up to the amount of three adaptive tricycles. This means, if you help us reach our goal of $10,000, you will be helping campers get SIX NEW BIKES to enjoy!
We need your help to reach our goal of raising $10,000 for new adaptive tricycles!
You don’t have to wait until Giving Tuesday to have your gift matched. You can get a team together and set your own fundraising goal or make a gift securely online right now. All gifts will receive a charitable tax receipt and the warm feeling of making a kid’s summer at camp even more special.
Thank you for helping us give more kids the chance to push their boundaries while riding a fully accessible bike at Easter Seals camp next summer and for years to come!
