The vision of Micah’s Bikes is to provide therapeutic bicycles to special needs children in families that cannot afford to make this substantial purchase. Therapeutic bicycles can be very expensive, ranging in cost from $1200 to several thousand dollars depending on the severity of the handicap. Therapeutic bicycles can be very beneficial to special needs and handicapped children. Known benefits of therapy bikes include:
- Improved coordination, endurance, and cardiovascular fitness, & strength
- Improved communication between the two hemispheres of the brain
- A greater level of self-confidence and a greater sense of independence
Unfortunately, many families with special needs and handicapped children are not able to afford this expense. These families are so often besieged by special needs related expenses that a bicycle, even a therapeutic one seems like a luxury. This is where Micah’s Bikes hopes to step in and meet the pressing needs of these families. We ask that you would partner with us to provide a therapeutic bicycle to a needy child.
