Anna Lavender

11-year-old Mikey Lavender from Christchurch, who suffers from Downs Syndrome, received $1,399 funding from the Mazda Foundation for a specialised Trike.
As a result of his syndrome, Mikey has reduced strength, coordination, balance and finds new activities challenging and difficult.

Mikey’s specialised Trike will enable him to build strength and cognitive ability, as well as allow him to go bike riding with his family in the nearby Bottle Lake Forest.
