KidsAbility Centre for Child Development Foundation- Ontario, Waterloo
GoodLife Kids Foundation is supporting KidsAbility’s iCan Bike program for children in Waterloo Region, Guelph Wellington and surrounding areas.
The freedom and exhilaration of riding a bike is something that every child should experience. iCan Bike is a specialized program designed to teach children with special needs ages 8 and up how to ride a two-wheeled bike without training wheels. Participants ride adapted bicycles for 75 minutes for 5 days, gradually transitioning to their own two-wheeled bike. The ultimate goal of the program is to have all 40 participants riding their own bike independently. Learning to ride a bike has a positive impact on self-confidence, while enabling a sense of freedom and independence- something these children do not get to experience often enough.
