Tricycles delivered to the courtyard of Building 15 created quite a buzz this summer. The eight NuvoTrikes were unloaded, sat upon and given a couple of quick test runs. Learn more about the three wheelers on Life-Wire News. https://lifewire.news/2017/07/14/the-trikes-arrive-at-lifestyles/
Lifestyles for the Disabled was out in force Saturday to see the Hudson Valley Renegades take on the Staten Island Yankees on Star Wars Night. The game was exciting, and the hometown team shut out the Renegades, 2-0.
The hot, muggy weather and numerous showers did not ruin the night for the 218 fans supporting the Lifestyles fundraiser. They were rewarded with an awesome fireworks display over the Richmond County Bank Ballpark in St. George.
The Staten Island Disabilities Council held its Mourning Breakfast to lament the cuts in services. The March 3 event was one of five breakfasts held in each of New York City’s boroughs to appeal to Governor Andrew Cuomo to restore services, increase salaries of care workers and to open more assisted living facilities for those with developmental disabilities. Several Staten Island lawmakers were there to pledge their support including Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, State Senator Dianne Savino, and Assemblyman Matthew Titone.
A group of our tricyclists headed down to the New Jersey Disability Pride Parade and Celebration to show everyone how much fun can be had on three wheels. Don’t worry. They didn’t ride their Nuvotrikes all the way to Mill Hill Park.
