Eau Claire, WI--Trike for handicapped lady.
I lady I correspond with on Another Board lives in Eau Claire, Wisconsin and is semidisabled. She can't drive a car or balance on a two-wheeler, but is capable of pedling a trike or quad. As EC has very little in public transit, she has to frequently beg friends/neighbors for rides, which she doesn't like to do too often.
Unfortunately, she has no money, and most of the charities she has found that would pay for a trike only help children, not adults.
Would anyone be willing to build her a conveyance, something (perhaps) along the lines of an Atomic Zombie Delta Runner or Lode Runner (www.atomiczombie.com
) ? If so, please post, pm, or e-mail me your contact information and I'll pass it along to her.
If anyone can do this, you will be doing a great favor for someone who has been kicked in the teeth by life a bit more than anyone deserves. You will be able to restore a large measure of her independence.
