Money raised each year fund our bike camp teaching kids with Down syndrome and other developmental delays to ride a traditional 2 wheeled bike in five days.
Lydia’s family founded The Lydia Faith Cox Family Foundation after her death in 2009. The money raised from the foundation’s golf tournament, and other fund raising events, would no longer go towards medical needs, but to help others. After much soul searching, it was decided our efforts would be used to help children with Down syndrome and other developmental delays learn to ride a two wheeled bike through the iCan Shine bike camp program (formerly Lose the Training Wheels method developed by Dr. Richard E. Klein). The foundation raised enough in its first year as a 501(c)3 charitable organization, to fund a week long camp and we partnered with the Down Syndrome Association of Greater St. Louis to host the Lydia Cox Memorial Bike Camp.
