Through the generosity of an anonymous donor, we have a $6,000 matching grant! For every $1 donated, it will be matched 100% for a total of $12,000. Your $100 donation becomes $200, thanks to the matching grant. We are very close to our goal that will provide for our first bike and trailer, please help us make it happen in Toledo!
While most of us are able to ride a bicycle, there are people in the community with mobility issues or who lack the independence to experience the joys and benefits of cycling. Cycling Without Age uses specially designed rickshaw bicycles to provide nursing home residents and people with differing abilities the opportunity to experience cycling in a social setting while enjoying the fresh air and the beauty around them. Watch the video to see the impact of the program in Ottawa.
The program began in Copenhagen, Denmark by Ole Kassow, a gentleman who enjoyed riding his bike every day to work. Along the route, he passed a 90-year-old man who spent his time sitting in the same spot week after week. Ole decided to do something about this and showed up one morning on a trishaw and asked the man if he would like a bike ride. Off they went and Cycling Without Age was born. That bike ride has grown into over 300 Cycling Without Age chapters in 6 continents.
Maumee Valley Adventurers, in partnership with We Are Traffic is very excited to bring this movement to the greater Toledo area. Your donation will help us bring this program to the Greater Toledo Area! We are a 501c3 not-for-profit, all donations are tax deductible.
