Big smiles and warm summer breezes: Students ride specialized three-wheelers for fitness and fun

One of Latham’s Program initiatives in 2017 is physical fitness, and students on campus are showing us how much fun fitness can be.  We’ve been enjoying watching them gleefully ride around on specialized adaptive tricycles. Many of the three-wheeled tricycles were purchased with grant funds, providing students with more opportunities to stay active on campus. For many Latham Centers students, including those diagnosed with PWS, bike riding does not come easy.  These three-wheelers enable even those who struggle with balance and mobility to boost their strength and confidence, and enjoy a sense of freedom.  The tricycles come in all sizes and varieties and are known for their ease of use, maneuverability, and power.

Special thanks to our funders who helped make these wished-for bikes a reality!
