Young's Ice Cream Charity Bike Tour

September 7, 2024

Join us for the Young's Ice Cream Charity Bike Tour, a cycling event filled with fun, camaraderie, and scenic routes! Riders of all skill levels are welcome to participate and help raise funds for United Rehabilitation Services.

Funds raised from this event benefit four extraordinary non-profits: United Rehabilitation Services (URS), the Alzheimer’s Association, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF), and South Community, Inc.

URS has been a proud participant in the Young's Ice Cream Charity Bike Tour for 13 years. Funds raised from this event help URS provide essential services and programs for children and adults with disabilities in our community. Your participation and donations make a significant difference in the lives of those we serve!

Meet the Ambassador: Josh

Josh, a friendly young man known as a “social butterfly,” loves riding his special bike around the URS campus and interacting with friends and staff in the Adult Services Program.

Josh, who is 37 years old, has been coming to URS for more than seven years. Born six weeks prematurely, he is a twin diagnosed with cerebral palsy and a developmental delay.

Josh has made significant physical progress over the years, transitioning from a wheelchair to walking with the aid of a walker. He received physical therapy services at URS when he was younger and has undergone several surgeries to improve his mobility. Up until the age of 13, Josh suffered from a severe seizure disorder but is now seizure-free thanks to the ketogenic diet.

According to his mom, Jodi, "I think since Josh has been at URS he has gained such confidence in himself. Participating in the vocational program allows him to really develop his skills and he just lights up

when talking about clients and staff that he has met at URS and gets to spend time with. In a word, he is just HAPPY. As his mom, URS provides me with peace of mind. Josh is surrounded by people who care about him, who support him to learn and grow. He is exposed to vocational training, recreational, and social activities - URS is his home away from home.”

Join us in supporting Josh and his journey at URS. Your involvement makes stories like his possible.
