For the second time in two months, Robbie’s Riders, Grampy’s Charities and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank presented adaptive tricycles to Southwest Florida children. Jason Cruz-Morales, a 5-year-old boy diagnosed with Down syndrome and leukemia, Kassandra Benavidez Arellano, a 2-year-old girl diagnosed with right Erb’s palsy, and Kyleon Belgrove, a 27-month-old boy with developmental delay, all received custom tricycles that will assist with general strengthening, new proprioceptive sensory input and improved reciprocal coordination of the legs. They can now participate in activities with their families and peers and enjoy the normal childhood experience of riding a bike.
