A bike to help Zak get to work

Posted Jun 7, 2024
Zak is working his first job this summer and is very excited to gain skills and experience that will help him with his future. Zak has been borrowing a bike from his foster home to get to work and to different places around town, but Zak is very tall and the bike that he is using is for someone much shorter. Zak can't get around as quickly on this bike and it causes him to have a lot of back pain, since it's too small. Zak would love to have a bigger bike that he can ride comfortably and efficiently! Zak has also asked for a mountain bike in one of his favorite colors, so this purple mountain bike will be perfect to meet his needs as well as his color preference!

Zak is 16 years old and lives in OH

Zak is a very future-focused, goal oriented young man. Zak has spent many years in out-of-home placements and has truly made the best of his situation. Zak enjoys being outside, riding his bike, watching Anime, and working towards his future. Zak is looking forward to working at his first job this summer and starting the work towards getting his driver's license. For Zak, the sky is truly the limit when it comes to what he can do with his life!
