This initiative aims to raise funds to offer the athlete João Paulo Ribeiro carrying a motor disability a bike adapted so you can start another competition.

This project has a very specific purpose, which is to buy a bicycle adapted for João Paulo Ribeiro.

Who is João Paulo Ribeiro?

João Paulol is a young man of 33, live in Ponte de Lima, who after an accident at age 16 was pushed to a wheelchair, but he lowered his arms!

João saw in sport will continue to fight, regardless of their physical condition.

In 2007 he began in adapted sports, starting in the team ADMB (associação de deficientes motores de Barcelos), and to this day it has not stopped.

About the author

My name is Tiago Costa, I'm 27 years old and I'm from Barcelos.

Work in a general mechanics company, and have a hobby sport, and this time I practice running, gym, kick boxing and boot camp.

I decided to be the promoter of this initiative, as being a friend of João and want to make him a surprise, and to show him that the cause is not lost!

Esta é a bicicleta que preciso para me iniciar no paraciclismo.



I met João in person in 2014 at a meeting in Braga because we share the same taste as are cars, but now the going speaking through a forum, then by facebook and finally we met in Braga, and has since become good friends.

This passion for the sport, something I have in common with João stuck with me in order to try to realize a dream he has, because John is a fighter, a person who never gave up to pursue its objectives, and with this my initiative want him to go further.

Knowing that he is a winner, a person who does not give up the dream, I decided to help you achieve more of your goals.

With this I ask all the people who can contribute to the value of the bike is not an obstacle in his life.

Thanks to you all!

Budget and due dates

The budget for the purchase of bicycle adapted to João condition costs about 5,000€, but I ask more about 300€ to the inherent to this application expenses. I propose also 2 months (60 days).
