Choptank Electric Trust provides gift of mobility to Benedictine studentsIn a recent grant award from Choptank Electric Trust’s Operation Round Up, the Trust’s non-profit whose aim is to improve the quality of life in their community, the Benedictine School received $2,400 for the purchase of adaptive tricycles for its students.

As a special education program that serves over 60 students with developmental disabilities and autism, Benedictine’s physical education programs require specialized equipment. The grant allowed the School to replace older devices with two new adaptive tricycles. The specialized tricycles are often medically necessary for students who are unable to walk independently, or for those who require wheelchair support.

Adaptive tricycles help to provide the gift of mobility to Benedictine students. Choptank Electric Trust’s gift will be used year-round by those who would otherwise be unable to enjoy the ability to ride and engage with their peers. Each student, including those with severe physical challenges, benefits from improved coordination, balance, and increased lower leg strength the tricycles offer.
