iCan Bike, a program of the nonprofit iCan Shine, helps individuals age 8 and above learn how to ride a two-wheel bike in a supportive, adaptive, and fun environment. Each rider attends a 75-minute session each day of the weeklong camp, Monday through Friday. The iCan Bike program is adapted to accommodate the unique abilities of each individual rider as they learn and practice in a small group of peers. Two volunteers are assigned to each rider to provide support, motivation and encouragement throughout the week. Years of research, months of planning in the local community and hours of support from wonderful, caring volunteers lead to your child attaining a lifetime of confidence.

Location:

PO BOX 3914, WILMINGTON, NC 28406, US

Mission Statement

We believe that every individual has the right to be accepted in their community and have similar opportunities as that of their peers. Our mission is to support, connect and provide resources and opportunities for people with DS and their families in Southeastern North Carolina. By raising awareness and educating our community we help others include and clearly see the value of people with Down syndrome.

Description

At Coastal BUDS we have three areas of focus: social and recreational opportunities, family support and education, and awareness and outreach.

Social and Recreational Opportunities: iCan Swim Camp (an adapted learn to swim camp), iCan Dance Camp, Down to Move, Next Chapter Book Clubs and Down to Cook (healthy life skills and meal prep).

Family Support & Education: This includes community with parent education, welcome bags for new parents, our lending library, workshops/support group, sending parents to conferences such as NC Down Syndrome Conference, DSAIA, NDSS Adult Summit, family picnics and events, benevolent funding and support for heart surgeries (through our High Hopes: Emerson High Heart Fund).

Awareness and Outreach: The Cape Fear Buddy Walk which takes place in the fall, is our largest fundraising event. By including businesses, sponsors, volunteers and our local media we educate the community, raise awareness and funds for our organization. Our community-wide World Down Syndrome Day event is held each March.
