Hand Cycle Project
This holiday season Rufus Racing and Svitak will be teaming up to help purchase a hand cycle for a local 13 year old girl. This girl and her family were involved in a tragic accident that left her paralyzed from the waist down with a complete spinal cord injury. Prior to the accident this young lady was a competitive player for her school volleyball team. While recovering from the injury she had the opportunity to ride a hand cycle at her rehab clinic. This is something she hopes to one day do again. We, as a local running, biking and swimming community have the opportunity to step up and help make this happen for this young lady. We will be using funds from money raised during the past few years of Svitak to help get this project started. This, however, only covers less than half the cost of the bike. Over the next 2 weeks we will be selling t-shirts to help cover the remaining costs. All profits from the shirts will go towards funds for the bike. If we can sell 100 shirts, the bike will be covered. Thank you in advance for your support of this fundraiser and this young girl and her family. I will also be donating $5 from every Artifakts Apparel shirt sold as well to help support this great cause.
