Eligibility requirements

The Sanford Great American Bike Race (GABR) is an annual fundraising event created to help patients with cerebral palsy and related disabilities and their families purchase adaptive equipment and services. To be eligible for GABR funds, the applicant must meet the following requirements:
  • Be a child or young adult (under the age of 22), or be 22 or older during a grant period when the Foundation has available funds after the granting of awards to children and young adults.
  • Reside in one of the geographic locations identified on the map within the application form.
  • Have a diagnosis of cerebral palsy or another childhood onset developmental delay and meet the medical necessity criteria.
  • Meet financial need criteria.

The GABR disbursement committee meets four times a year to review application forms. Application deadlines for each disbursement are: Feb. 10, May 10, Aug. 10 and Nov. 10.

GABR's motto is "Do it for the kids." Every year many kids and others are helped as a result of this great event.
