$1,000 raised to replace Victoria teen’s stolen tricycle

Teen uses the customized trike as her main mode of transportation

In only one day, 25 people donated enough money for a Victoria teen with cerebral palsy to replace her stolen tricycle — and then some.

After the teen’s customized tricycle, which she uses as her main transportation, was stolen on Sept. 22 a fundraiser online raised $1,000 for a new ride. The fundraiser had originally asked for $240 for a similar tricycle but changed the funds needed to $750 after the trike didn’t accommodate the teen’s mobility needs.
