I'm writing this letter to apply for a handcycle. I'm on a wheelchair racing team called "The Navigators". My mom and I recently saw a handcycle at the ability expo and I tried it and loved it.
All my friends at "The Navigators" team have a handcycle and I would love to own the handcycle and ride with them. Thank you for looking at my application.
Thank you, Andrew Greenwood
Dear Athletes Helping Athletes,
My son Andrew Greenwood (15 years old), was born in Jersey City, New Jersey. He was born with Spina Bifida. Over the past 15 years of his life, Andrew has been faced with many challenges. Surgeries, making friends and school have been some of his challenges.
For many years, he hasn't known much of the social world due to the many surgeries and hospital stays. Andrew and I recently came across a wheelchair racing team named the Navigators. The founder Jimmy Cueves. Ever since Andrew joined the team, I have seen the joy he experiences when he&39;s racing. He lights up!!!
Andrew and I recently went to an Ability Expos held in New Jersey. For the first time we saw a handcycle. He fell in love. He tried it and loved it!!! Unfortunately, I could not afford it.
The team leader, Jimmy Cueves recently emailed me the website, Athletes Helping Athletes Foundation. He informed me to apply for a grant.
Using a handcycle would benefit Andrew in exercising, participating with his friends, and family during bike outings, and most importantly, Andrew would be confident he is able to feel "included".
