Preston is a happy 13 year old who has Mitochondrial Disease which leaves him with low muscle tone, and developmental delays. He tires easily and has balance issues but everyday he wakes up smiling and determined to keep up with his friends and especially his big brother!
This past year Preston was blessed to have an adapted bike donated to him through a fundraiser that was developed by a family friend. Deb and Steve (Prestons parents) has always recognized the need for adaptive physical equipment for Preston because of his limitations and now see that there are many other children who could use adaptive equipment. The only roadblock for many families is the expense. Preston's bike cost $2200.00!
Throughout the years Preston attended physical education in public elementary school and has not been able to actually participate on his own. He may turn a rope for someone to jump and throw a ball but that is the extent of it.
With the overwhelming need for adaptive physical education equipment for children with disabilites and the concern for childhood obesity the Buenaga's have decided to open their non-profit to dividing the monies raised through Preston's March between UMDF and funding for adaptive equipment for the school environment and individuals.
