We get up before the sun, so a child can learn to talk. We endure the summer heat, so a child can learn to walk. We fight the Kansas wind, so a child can learn to play with peers. We ride in PedalFest to change the life of a child with special needs.
The proceeds raised at PedalFest are awarded to these ever-deserving children for financial assistance to receive free and reduced fee services at Heartspring. Most children with special needs benefit from more than one type of therapy, multiple times per week. On average, the fees for these therapies add up to more than $1,140 per month. However, these children typically receive just $100 per month of financial assistance, covering only 10% of their monthly fees.
With the generosity of PedalFest sponsors and participants, these children will be able to receive the financial assistance needed. The more we raise together, the more these children will receive in financial assistance. Our goal at Heartspring is to never turn a child away from their “first step”, “first word spoken” or “first friend made” because of their family’s inability to pay. This is why your support of PedalFest is crucial.
