Adapted Tandem Bicycle
Benedetta (Bene) is a teenage girl who exudes strength and determination. She is very
inquisitive and perceptive. Bene was diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at birth. The CP causes
swallowing, breathing, vision, hearing, development, and communication challenges.
Bene enjoys any opportunity to move outside of her wheelchair and loves her physical therapy (PT)
At PT, Bene discovered an adapted bike that allows movement of her legs on
the pedals and gives her a feeling of freedom to do it independently. Bene sang in her own
style, loud pitch squealing when she was first introduced to a cycle she could use!
The donors committed to American Mobility Project’s mission matched a birthday fundraiser
Bene’s family had for her, and Bene’s bike is being specially built just for her! Oh, Bene, we are
so happy for you and your family! Spending time with her brother, Sean, and other family members and friends will be something Bene will sing about for years to come.
