Through a partnership with MUSC and a nonprofit group based in Simpsonville, SC, Heathers Ride, Lancaster County Parks and Recreation received a gift of a Tandem Adaptive Bicycle that could be used along the newly developed Lindsey Pettus Greenway. It was at this dedication ceremony the first smile was generated that sparked the idea. “As I looked up the trail to see this first child riding the bike and the smile across his face, I knew this was something that needed to be replicated.” said Lancaster Breakfast Rotary President, Chad Catledge. “As I listened to the dedication and looked over this tandem bicycle the memories of my childhood flooded my mind. It was not until I observed a child with mobility constraints being buckled into this specialized bicycle and taking that first ride that I was overwhelmed with the urgency to reproduce the smile I saw on that child’s face.” “I thought to myself, this is fantastic that our community has this adaptive bicycle available for the families that have a child with mobility constraints, but we only have one.” Catledge continued. “Where can we have the maximum impact on generating the smiles I experienced that day on the Greenway? Our Schools!”. Therefore the relentless pursuit began. A partnership of the Lancaster County School District and the Lancaster Breakfast Rotary Club was formed to provide 14 adaptive bicycles across our school district to provide the opportunity for these children to ride a bike. And we are eager to continue to partner with other school districts to do the same!
