Dear Athletes Helping Athletes, My son, Emilio Shafer; is a child with a multitude of physically challenging special needs. My name is Elka Shafer and I am writing this letter on his behalf. Emilio is currently enrolled and participating in the City Of Chula Vista's Parks and Recreation Departments Theraputic's Handcycling class at Greg Roger's Elementary School. This program has really helped him in building his upper body strength. He also loves the feeling of cycling itself. He has also asked for a handcycle for this Christmas. Being a single mother of four there isn't any possiblity that I can ever fulfill such a dream. I was told your organization grants such requests when able. Emilio would like this letter to be his "Letter of Donation Request" for a handcycle would be a joy to have him enjoy a physical activity he likes.
