To celebrate our rich history, we would like to share 80 stories that have made Variety of Wisconsin the great organization it is today. Each story will spotlight people – including volunteers, donors and sponsors who have helped build our organization, and most importantly, stories about children that we have served. We will also spotlight significant milestones and achievements throughout our history.
Join us as we celebrate our 80th anniversary with our 80 Years 80 Stories campaign.
80 Years 80 Stories: Story #52-Chanse’s Story
Chanse is a bright 10-year-old boy that loves to play with his peers and engage in activities with his family. He is diagnosed with cerebral palsy and uses a power wheelchair for mobility at home, school and in the community. Chanse wanted to have another form of mobility, a bike! With all of the help from our Variety supporters, Chanse got his wish! Shortly after receiving his bike, Chanse’s mom sent us a note that read, “Thank you so much for the bike. Chanse came home and exercised for 4 hours last night and got right back on again the next morning. In fact, he is sitting on his bike right now.”
Chanse is very proud of his ability to pedal his bike and to show his peers his success with the bike. Chanse looks forward to riding his bike with his sister and family around the neighborhood and at school for therapy.
Watch the video below to see Chanse on his new bike!
