Grampy's Supports Robbie's Riders

Providing Adaptive Trikes for Kids in Need

Grampy's Charities was proud to partner with Robbie’s Riders, and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank to present six adaptive bicycles to support the needs of children. “These custom-made bicycles not only benefit these special children physically, but they also give them a sense of inclusion and independence,” said Jack Johannemann, director of Robbie’s Riders. “These bikes change these children’s lives and the lives of their families.” All the recipients are between the ages of four and ten years old and have medical issues such as traumatic brain injuries, autism, down syndrome, and cerebral palsy.

Robbie's Riders provides the opportunity for children with all abilities the experience of the childhood pleasure of riding a bike, positively impacting their lives. When riding these bicycles, children benefit from general strengthening, new proprioceptive sensory input, and improved reciprocal coordination of the legs. They can participate in activities with their families and peers and enjoy the normal childhood experience of riding a bike. Robbie’s Riders provides special adaptive bicycles and tricycles to children with disabilities, according to their individual capacities and needs. The charity works to donate special needs cycles as quickly as they can raise funds to purchase them.
