Thanks to support from Grampy’s Charities and Sanibel Captiva Community Bank, Save the Kid Fund presented its first adaptive bicycles to two Fort Myers siblings through its Freedom Program at the bank’s McGregor branch.

Emma Ravish, born with no legs, and Benjamin Ravish, handicapped with underdeveloped legs as a result of childhood polio, both received custom-made handcycles, worth $2,500, that will enable them to participate in the normal childhood experience of riding a bike.

“Having a bicycle to ride gives these kids independence and social freedom,” said Jack Johannemann, Save the Kid Fund director. “It’s amazing to see how riding a bicycle can bring such wonderful smiles to their faces.”

Save the Kid Fund’s Freedom Program provides special adaptive bicycles to children with disabilities. With six local children already on a waiting list, Save the Kid Fund works to donate adaptive bicycles as quickly as they can raise funds to purchase them.

Grampy’s Charities has supported Save the Kid Fund, opening up new avenues to fundraise and continue delivering adaptive bicycles to children with disabilities. Sanibel Captiva Community Bank partnered with Grampy’s Charities in fundraising earlier this year, making it possible for Save the Kid Fund to present bicycles to the Ravishes.

A small, all-volunteer organization, Save the Kid Fund has provided more than $1.1 million in assistance since 1986. The organization is dedicated to bettering the lives of children. Learn more at www.savethekid.org.

Grampy’s Charities is a volunteer organization with no paid staff. For a quarter century, they have donated more than $3 million to children’s charities. Learn more at www.grampyscharities.org.

Founded in 2003, Sanibel Captiva Community Bank has two locations on Sanibel and five additional locations in Fort Myers. Sanibel Captiva Community Bank’s professionals provide customized individual and business banking services and specialize in residential loans. The bank supports more than 75 local nonprofit organizations. To learn more, visit www.SanCapBank.com.
