Team Freedom Supports a Life Without Limits for Individuals with Disabilities. United Cerebral Palsy of the Inland Empire (UCPIE) has been creating smiles, freedom and belonging since 2012 with their adaptive bike program and Team Freedom at Tour de Palm Springs. On February 12, 2022 UCPIE’s Team Freedom had over 70 participants both on location and virtually participate in their neighborhoods and communities to participate in the 24th annual Tour de Palm Springs.
“It’s amazing, especially with being apart so long to see the unity of a community to support not only local non-profits but health and wellness as a whole” said Rhea Hoffman, first time Tour de Palm Springs participant.
Practicing social distancing, but still brought together on social media, our virtual team members and their families shared photos and videos using the hashtags #ucpie #teamfreedom2022 #tourdepalmsprings.
Lori Enroth shares her family’s experience, “While we are still quarantining to protect Andy, our medically fragile son, we got to show our team spirit and be part of the Tour de Palm Springs by walking in our backyard. Thanks to all of our friends and family who supported UCPIE!”
The team was able to raise close to $50,000 this year thanks to generous sponsors: Contour Dermatology, Shottenkirk Desert Lexus, Palm Springs Subaru, and IEHP, along with pledges from friends and family. Money raised by Team Freedom helps UCPIE fund life-changing programs and services for many special needs families. Thanks to generous sponsors, donors and the fundraising efforts of Team Freedom, UCPIE has been able to provide close to 90 children and adults with special needs their very own bike and a Life without Limits.
