Nathan and Alex Lang
Brother’s Nathan and Alex from Hei Hei in Christchurch can now enjoy bike rides with their mates thanks to specialised bikes they received through the Halberg Activity Fund.
Thirteen year old Nathan has Fibrodysplaysia so has a limited ability to move his neck and shoulders and Alex has Achondroplasia which is a type of dwarfism.
“Now that they have their bikes they are able to ride with their friends and want to be outside riding rather staying inside in front of the television.”
The Halberg Activity Fund helped grant a recumbent trike for Nathan and a trike for Alex, which has done wonders for their independence as they are both able to hang out with their friends and ride to and from school.
Dad David Lang said without the funding the trikes would have been impossible.
