Preston’s March for Energy recently donated an adaptive bike to Eddie Hazeldine, age 13.
The nonprofit’s mission is to provide adaptive bikes to children with special needs. One hundred and forty children ages 6-21 have received bikes from Preston’s March.
The bike was presented at Rockland Place, an assisted living and memory care community that supports area children like Eddie through Watermark for Kids. Preston’s March for Energy Executive Director Deb Buenaga presented the bike with her son, Preston.
Buenaga explained how each bike is designed for the recipient at a cost of $1,400-$2,500 per bike and demonstrated how the bikes can be adapted to the needs of the riders. Almost 90 area children are on the waiting list for adaptive bikes.
