A raffle is underway to help support a special cause in Plymouth County. Through the donation of an e-bike from Total Motors, representatives of Josh’s Ride are raising funds to continue gifting custom tricycles to special needs individuals.
Beth Meyer, one of members of the Josh’s Ride “mom squad” told KLEM that eighty of these special bicycles have been given away since the first one was given to Josh Koons in 2015. Josh passed away almost two years ago, but his legacy continues. Meyer said the origin of this program began when Josh’s mom, Kim, entered a contest to win one of these adaptive bikes.
Meyer says each bicycle is ordered for the size and needs of the recipients after consulting with family members, teachers, and therapists.
Raffle ticket are selling for $10 each for a chance to win the e-bike. Tickets are available from businesses including Total Motors, Exit Realty, Bellissimo Coffeeworks, & American Bank in Le Mars or from members of the “mom squad.”
