👻AHHHH — BEST part of the month! Cause it’s GIVEAWAY time! #celebratewithmadsen (Enter HERE!)

As part of our DISABILITY AWARENESS CELEBRATION, we have partnered up with some of our favorite people + companies, who all are doing incredible things to promote inclusion and spread awareness for the amazing special needs community. 💪

WINNER!!! Krieger family from Mesa, Arizona. Nominated by Fritz's aunt, Becca Dehoyos.

Disability Awareness Giveaway Winner - the Kreiger Family - Duschenne Muscular Dystrophy

"The Krieger family has 4 children. Their 3rd son, Fritz was diagnosed with Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy at 10 months old. He is currently 3. Duchenne causes the muscles to deteriorate over time. Boys with Duchenne loose the ability to walk by their teenage years and do not live through the 20s. Currently there is no cure. The Krieger family has taught their community that strength does not come from strong muscles. Strength is so much more. Strength is fighting every day to bring awareness to this terminal disease. Strength is giving Fritz the best life despite his inabilities. Strength is their community walking along side the Kriegers. The Krieger family would enjoy the bike because they have said from the beginning, they refused to let this disease control their life. Their desire is to allow Fritz to be a typical 3 old year with modifications. Fritz’s muscles to do not allow him to pedal on a bike but with this modification, he can still experience the same joy his brothers do when they cruise down the road. Strength is family bike rides!"

“This is Our Zoey Grace. She is light and beauty and all that is perfect in this world. She came blazing into our lives sporting an extra chromosome, born straight into congestive heart failure, suffered a stroke prenatally that has left her with a secondary diagnosis of cerebral palsy, fought a catastrophic form of epilepsy and because our girl likes to go big, battled leukemia at the tender age of 19 months. But none of those things define her. What does is her indomitable will to survive and the joy that she scatters amongst those who choose to take the time to get to know her. She is the axis from which we all turn and truly the greatest gift of our lives. I often tell people, please do not pity us. Instead be jealous of us. For we truly are the lucky few. Thanks for this amazing month you are spotlighting. Incredible really. As are your bikes. One day I hope to own one so my girl and I can more readily spread her sunshine. 💙💛” —Heather, Zoey’s warrior mom
