An Adaptive Bike for a Local “Warrior on Wheels”

Nine-year-old Kelson was the latest Help Hope Live client to receive a burst of joy, hope, and mobility when our Flyers Alumni Every Child Deserves a Bike partnership resulted in another customized adaptive bike giveaway.

9-year-old Kelson is depicted in four photos in a grid frame. He has short curly brown hair, light brown skin, and dark brown eyes and he is smiling or laughing in every photo. He appears to be seated at a classrom desk.

Kelson is living with cerebral palsy with spastic diplegia and dystonia. As a result, he has limited capabilities for independent motion and balance, which is why a traditional bike doesn’t work well for him.

Adaptive bikes are life-enhancing for kids like Kelson, but they often force families to come up with thousands to cover the out-of-pocket cost with no help from insurance.

9-year-old Kelson wears a mask, a red shirt, black pants, and black shoes as he uses black forearm crutches to stand for a posed photo with someone in a Spiderman costume in a hotel lobby setting. He has light brown skin, curly brown hair, brown eyes, and a mask.

With this special gift in hand, Kelson’s family will continue to rely on Help Hope Live for trusted medical fundraising for this “one in a billion kid” who is “big hearted, expressive, and proud” and loves going to school, Marvel, Disney, Star Wars, and every Philly sports team.

Kelson wears a brown shirt with a baby yoda on it and gray camoflage print pants as he poses in front of an aquarium. He has a huge smile and is extending his arms to the left and right in excitement. He has light brown skin, curly dark hair, and dark eyes.

Every donation to our nonprofit enables both our medical fundraising assistance and special projects like this one that bring hope within closer reach. Thank you for your ongoing support of our mission!
