Rosie's Story

"Receiving the bike on Christmas Eve was indescribable for Rosie and especially the family. It opened the door to the possibility of higher goals and a stronger belief that anything is possible." 
Jen Antonson

We spoke to Jen, Rosie and Tommy's Mom, about Rosie and what the bike did for their family.

When Rosie got her new bike, I think the person that was affected the most by it was her big brother Tommy. He was so touched that someone would raise money for other kids who needed a very expensive bike in order to be able to ride, that he wanted to be part of Project Mobility himself and pay it forward.

"Rosie has a desire to be able to do things that other kids do everyday, like ride a bike. That is why being given the opportunity to have a bike of her own was fantastic. Purchasing a "custom adaptive bike" was quite simply an option beyond our means, having earlier resigned ourselves to meeting other obligations and smaller goals."

"Receiving the bike on Christmas Eve was indescribable for Rosie and especially our family. It opened the door to the possibility of "higher" goals and a stronger belief that anything is possible."

It is very humbling when people open their hearts to the gift of generosity.

Check out Rosie, Riley, and Tommy back in 2010 with Mai Martinez from CBS 2 Chicago news. Mai came out to film our surprise deliveries again that year. Here the kids are with her at Marklund where we surprised them with an adaptive bike. Those kids sure have grown look at them now!
