TAD wins Award for Bicycle Friendly Business
The Cycling Promotions Fund, who promote the benefits of cycling to people of all ages has given an Honorable Mention to TAD for their FREEDOM WHEELS Modified Bike Program. FREEDOM WHEELS modifies standard pushbikes to enable children and adults with a disability to ride a bike for the first time.
The award acknowledges TAD's efforts to promote a form of recreation often taken for granted, and one that seems inaccessible for someone with a disability. Since the program's redevelopment and launch almost two years ago, we have put over 200 children onto their own modified bike.
TADNSW scoops another FIA Award

Capping off an already successful year for TAD, the Fundraising Institute of Australia has honoured TAD yet again - this time for Best Capital Campaign.
In 2002, TAD Foundation launched the TADHouse: Reaching New Heights campaign to raise funds for a new building. This campaign (with its subsequent earnings) raised over $2.0 million.
After a two year delay, TADNSW purchased a property at Northmead for $2.43 million (excluding GST). In the final stages of the TADHouse campaign, a further $600,000 was needed to complete the purchase and fit out the new property.
The award acknowledges the hard work and effort from TAD's board, staff and volunteers, to realise TAD's dream of having their own premises, after more than 30 years housed at Ryde's Royal Rehabilitation Centre Sydney.
