Meet the #KBFamily – Matt from Wisconsin

 

“I can’t thank the Kelly Brush Foundation enough for helping me get this handcycle. It is such a smooth, fluid ride that I feel the urge to ride it whenever I think and talk about it.”

Meet Matt from Wisconsin, a Spring 2017 grant recipient of a new handcycle. After sustaining a spinal cord injury in a motorcycle accident in 1999, his friends and family fundraised to buy him an entry-level handcycle. He’s been riding that over 15 years! He applied for a new handcycle so he could find that love of cycling again.

In April of 2017, the KBF awarded him $1,500 to help him get back out there.

 

He’s had the handcycle all summer now, and checked in this week:

“I received my Top End Force 3 hand cycle and LOVE it! I have been riding more lately and am getting more used to it and finding the right fit. I’m riding 3-4 times per week and hope to ride much more as I get in better shape. ; ) I can’t thank you and your organization enough for helping me get this hand cycle. It is such a smooth, fluid ride that I feel the urge to ride it whenever I think and talk about it. Thank you so much again for helping me get this bike and allowing me be apart of such a great organization that does so much to help people improve their quality of life! ”

Congratulations Matt. Thank you for being part of the #KBFamily and stay smooth out there!
