Dear Lydia Family,
Thank you so much for starting this amazing charity. This camp had such an impact on us. You are an incredibly wonderful person. You have inspired me! Riley had a blast and so did we. We will keep working on her bike skills (if it ever stops raining!)
The Lydia Faith Cox Family Foundation is a St. Louis-based 501(c)(3) not-for-profit, all volunteer organization. Our mission is to foster a life of accomplishment and independence for children with developmental disorders or other special needs. We do this through our annual Lydia Cox Memorial Bike Camp Programs, where we teach these children how to ride a 2-wheel bike independently, through the iCan Bike program.
Lydia Faith Cox was born with Down Syndrome and after complications from two heart surgeries, she died at the age of 3. In honor of her joy and determination, Lydia’s family founded the Lydia Faith Cox Family Foundation in 2011 to raise funds and awareness for the bike camps, now called the Lydia Cox Memorial Bike Camps.
Our focus is to gift each camper and their family with a sense of inclusion while inspiring them to achieve things they thought to be impossible. We are proud of the many achievements our organization has achieved in such a short time, serving over 350 children with Down Syndrome, Autism and other developmental differences through our camps.
