Connecting children with disabilities with costly adaptive equipment—at no cost to the family—is the goal of The COLE Foundation, says founder Colleen Peterson. The Woodbury-based nonprofit is able to make this happen via equipment donations and events, including its second annual Wheels for Freedom Motorcycle Ride slated for July 13 at No Name Saloon, 114 Broad St., Prescott, Wisconsin.

“I started the Wheels for Freedom event in order to spread awareness about The COLE Foundation in a fun and unique way,” Peterson says. “I knew this was such a vital community resource that needed to be brought as much into the forefront of the community as possible.”

In its inaugural year, Peterson set a $15,000 fundraising goal for the event. “… We exceeded that, which was amazing,” she says. This year, the event includes the motorcycle ride with three bar stops along the route, returning to No Name Saloon for an afternoon with a DJ and a raffle. “If you don’t have a motorcycle, of course you are still welcome to ride in your car or be part of the raffle, DJ and band festivities at 4 p.m.,” Peterson says.

“We are looking forward to increasing awareness about the foundation, growing the number of participants and another fun-filled day celebrating the families and children that are true rockstars that show us how to overcome and adapt to daily life with disabilities,” Peterson says.
