Kustom Kruisers steps in for Teddy
Our dear friends at Kustom Kruisers have done it again, raising $5000 in support of the work of the MAD Foundation. Kustom Kruisers is a family orientated Classic Car and Bike club with a proud history in support of supporting important causes and research and MAD is privileged to be associated with the club.
President Damian Toohey attended the July 2022 AGM to accept this donation which will go directly to supporting beneficiary Teddy, a sweet 4 year old boy with a complex medical history, including Ehlers-Danlos Syndrome and surgeries to his feet and legs as an infant. This condition causes weakness to muscles and joints and makes internal organs more prone to rupture, which can be life-threatening.
The Momo Therapy bike allows Teddy to accumulate the necessary physical activity for cardiorespiratory improvements, strength gains, improve his quality of life and his self-esteem. Importantly, for self aware Teddy the modifications look like a “normal” bike and he feels like a big boy riding on his own.
The joy of his parents is summed up by his mother’s words…
“Words can’t express how incredible it is to see Ted riding independently and feeling like his peers. I am yet to watch him ride without getting teary.
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.”
