Meet 15 year old Danielle “Dee” List. Dee loves her family, her friends and, like a true Pittsburgher, her sports. Dee lives with a rare condition called glycosylation, which affects her central nervous system, and while she is in a wheelchair nothing stops her from swimming, bowling and yes, even walking! She especially loves the bike that her dad built for her.
On Sunday, October 2 join the Pittsburgh Police at Highland Park Bike Track (1401 Washington Blvd, PGH PA 15206) and bring your bike for a ride with Dee’z Wheels and Special Olympics of Pennsylvania. They will be celebrating all things bikes including a bike raffle, unicycle performance, a bike rodeo performed by Pittsburgh Police officers, and a chance to ride the Pittsburgh Party Pedaler. We’ll have DJ Rable playing the tunes, food trucks, and some great raffle prizes. Best of all, bring your bike and take a spin around the track with the amazing Dee and her fellow athletes from Special Olympics.
Don’t have a bike, don’t worry! Healthy Ride PGH will be providing bikes to use while supplies last!
