Specialized Mobility Bicycles help children with special needs gain mobility, confidence, freedom, independence and the chance to join in the life of their community. Variety – the Children’s Charity of Florida provides these specialized mobility bicycles to community physical therapy centers throughout Central Florida. In addition to seeing the smiles on children’s faces, these mobility pieces offer both physical and therapeutic benefits. Unfortunately, these mobility bicycles are cost prohibitive to some families and are not covered by insurance. We work with local physical therapy centers to identify children who would greatly benefit from a specialized mobility bicycle like the ones Variety – the Children’s Charity of Florida has to offer.
