We can't thank you enough for the bike you sent to Haley. It is a beautiful bike and we know she will get a lot of use out of it now and for years to come. We really appreciate you thinking of Haley and for your generosity. We will send you more pictures of her outside on the bike when the weather gets warmer, it's still a little bit cold here (unfortunately).
Thank you again, Eric, Heather, & Haley
12/22/08 Dear Athletes Helping Athletes,
I'm Haley Jenkinson the person who is applying for the bike and am 12 years old. I like to swim, horseback ride, and keep up with my family. One goal I have is to do a triathlon. Please consider me for a bike. I know I would use it a lot and for the rest of my life.
Thank you, Haley
To Athletes Helping Athletes,
Our daughter Haley was born 6 weeks premature with Cerebral Palsy. She is now 12 years old and has always had to use the assistance of a walker to walk, and probably will always need some type of assistance for walking. She loves doing whatever everyone else is doing. Over the years, she has tried many different activities, and right now has found swimming and horseback riding to be great activities for her. We like to keep her active so a bicycle would be extremely helpful for keeping her active and fit over the years. It would also enable her to use it for recreation and for activities we do as a family, she also has expressed interest in doing triathlons. She could use the bicycle for competing and also for just keeping up with her peers doing normal activities. We would love a bike for Haley to help her now and for years to come. She is a great with so much enthusiasm and determination to try new things. She thoroughly enjoys life and just wants to be included in doing what all her friends and family are able to do. We would really appreciate it if you would consider Haley as a recipient of one of your bicycles.
