Desert Smash

I was honored and humbled March 6th to be able to present a custom made Freedom Concepts bike to a worthy recipient, Evan Potter.
Desert Smash is a great tennis exhibition put on by Epic Sports and sponsored by K-Swiss.  Many of the top players show up....Quarry, Fish, Bryon and even #1 ranked Djokavic.

The proceeds benefit variety Club of the Desert.  One of our projects is the Freedom Concept bikes.  These are custom made to fit the individual and allows disabled children to ride and participate in something fun!
Evan was born with Cerebral Palsy.  He had a surgery in 2010 and a heart attack in 2011.  At age 6, he only weighs 38 pounds. 
But you've never seen someone happier than Evan when we cruised around with the bike on center court.  People were truly moved and even though there for the tennis, realized that there are families dealing with these kinds of challenges that need help.

A caregiver (Evan's mother, Monique) was treated to a round of applause and the attention of 3000 people.  She cares for Evan as a single parent and was overwhelmed by the outpouring of support!
A caregiver and her child get rewarded in the best way they can think possible.
