Josiah's Bicycle Engineering Challenge Sponsored by EmbroidMe Perth CBD

Josiah was born with no arms so riding a traditional bicycle is impossible. Late in 2008, Josiah’s mum Marika called Dreamfit Foundation CEO Darren Lomman for help. Marika wanted to know if there was anything that Dreamfit’s volunteer engineers could do to make Josiah’s dream of riding a bicycle a reality.

They did a lot!  

At an emotional, tear streaked and incredibly uplifting breakfast, Josiah chose his favourite bike from 6 that had been designed for him as part of a Student Engineering Challenge.  Full information can be found on the links below. The other 5 bikes are on their way to Cambodia for disabled and land mine victims to experience some independence and mobility.

The team at EmbroidMe Perth CBD were really pleased and excited to sponsor some printed T-shirts for Josiah, to wear for the presentation of his new bike.
