Twelve-year-old Gabriela (Gabi) Gavarret’s love of horses has always been therapeutic for her. She started riding horses when she was three years old in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and started walking a few months later.

“This past Winter we wrote a grant to EWRAP requesting a Wike trailer for our son, Carter. Carter is 8 and has CHARGE Syndrome. He loves to get out and explore his community, and he is quite the thrill seeker! The problem is his wheelchair was limited in places it could access. The Wike is a special needs bike trailer that can also be switched into an all terrain/jogging stroller. Thank you EWRAP for providing this awesome Wike to Carter and our family. It will allow him to better access more areas outside our home or the paved path, and will provide a fun family recreational experience!” – Amanda M.
