Do you remember the first time you rode a two-wheeler by yourself; the feeling of independence and freedom you gained as a child by mastering this skill? For many of us it is among the proudest moments of our childhood and has become a skill we continue to use for socialization, exercise and mobility.
Imagine giving this same independence and freedom to a child with disabilities—you can!
Please help UCP of the North Bay continue to help children with disabilities learn to ride a conventional two-wheeler. Your donation to The Big Bike Build of 2012 will allow UCP of the North Bay to purchase and customize a fleet of training bicycles and to expand the program throughout our three-county service area: Sonoma, Napa and Solano.
For a child with disabilities, riding a conventional two wheeled bicycle allows them to engage in social and recreational activities with their family and friends. Bicycling provides years of activity and exercise that can be vitally important for people with disabilities and it provides a means for self-mobility and self-determination that builds independence and fosters self-reliance.
The goal of the 2012 $1K Donor Club is to raise $100,000 to fund:
Join UCP of the North Bay’s $1K Donor Club today and be part of The Big Bike Build of 2012: help our children live a Life without Limits.
Thank you very much for your support of the Big Bike Build and United Cerebral Palsy of the North Bay.
The $1K Donor Club is a major fundraising effort designed to support the recreation activities that we provide for children and adults with developmental disabilities. The 2010 - 11 program met its goal of raising $100,000 and this enabled us to award scholarships to 40% of the families we serve. This club offers individuals, groups and businesses the opportunity to participate in a meaningful way in the lives of people with disabilities in our community.
