Successful Fundraiser Gets Cadillac Boy Adaptive Bike

A successful fundraiser helped make one little boy’s dream a reality today.

Today a pancake breakfast fundraiser in Cadillac benefited nine-year-old Wesley Gibson.

He has some disabilities that disrupt his speech and mobility — and for a while, his goal was to get an adaptive bike.

A few months ago Wesley tried to win his wheels in a national contest.

But when things didn’t pan out, his family didn’t give up hope.

They started “Wesley’s Bike Foundation” to raise money for a special tandem bike Wesley can ride with his dad.

Now, they won’t have to fundraise anymore… At least not for Wesley. Also, the Sons of AMVETS Post 120 and Ladies’ Auxiliary Post 120 in Mesick. 

Janet Gibson, Wesley’s mom, said, “We’ve determined this morning with the pre-sale of the tickets that we have just enough to buy Wesley’s bike, so Wesley’s bike has been ordered. So that’s excellent news. So any walk-ins or extras we have today is gonna start going to the fund to start helping another little girl that we found in Ann Arbor.”
