Exceptional people: Boy with spina bifida raises $11,000 handcycling 25km
Jeremiah, who was born with spina bifida and has limited use of his legs, was the only handcyclist at the Ride for Rainbows event held on April 29.
For his hard work, Jeremiah raised $11,078, making him one of the top-10 fund-raisers at this year's ride.
Ride for Rainbows started in 2012, and all proceeds go to programmes and services for Club Rainbow's beneficiaries, who are children with chronic illnesses and their families.
This year, nearly $587,000 was collected as of yesterday.
Donations are open until Monday and can be made through the Ride for Rainbows website.
