The mission of the Lydia Faith Cox Foundation is to sponsor a yearly bike camp for individuals with Down syndrome and other developmental disabilities at no cost to participating families.
Each year in collaboration with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis, the Lydia Faith Cox Foundation hosts a week long camp providing new bikes, helmets, t-shirts and medals to 40 individuals who have completed the camp. We are volunteer based and provide all services at no cost to families. All participants in our camp learn to ride a typical 2 wheel bike in 5 days. This skill fosters independence, self esteem and life long friendships.
