Mission Statement

Our mission is to make a positive difference in the lives of children, adults, and wounded soldiers with disabilities (cancer and autism). This is made possible by providing the services, resources, and equipment needed to promote better health, independence, and the freedom of mobility through adaptive cycling.

Description

Project Mobility was formed in 2002 by Founder Hal Honeyman. Hal's interest in adaptive cycling (bicycles for people with disabilities) was spurred when his own son Jacob was born with cerebral palsy. Hal wanted to find a way for Jacob to join the family when bicycle riding. After Jacob's needs were met, Hal found a demand for adaptive cycling and this led to the formation of Project Mobility.

Project Mobility, a nonprofit organization, offers recreational events using specialized bicycles for people with disabilities. Our professional staff works with families, rehabilitative professionals, and organizations to promote better health, independence, and most of all the freedom of mobility for people with disabilities.

Project Mobility, delivers these bikes to schools with children with disabilities (cancer and Autism), rehabilitative hospitals, and other places for the disabled, such as Shiners' Hospital, Rehabilitation Institute of Chicago, Access Chicago, Illinois schools, the University of Illinois, Independence First, Great Lakes Adaptive Sports, Molloy Education Center, and Fox Valley Special Recreation to provide the freedom of mobility and the experience of riding.

I have been volunteering at Project Mobility Adapitive Bike Giveaway events for years - Everybody Rides and Hops for Hope 5k - a priceless experience to be involved with such a great cause and organzation. To see the joy adaptive cycling brings to the lives of disabled children and adults (and their families and friends) never fails to touch my heart and leaves me speechless. Bless you for all you do - so glad to be a part of this organziation!
