Who We Are

iCan Shine (formerly, Lose The Training Wheels) is a national charitable nonprofit organization. We collaborate with local organizations and individuals, we refer to as our program ‘hosts’, to conduct over 100 five-day iCan Bike programs in 32 States and 3 Provinces in Canada serving nearly 3,000 people with disabilities each year.  Our organization began in 2007 and, since then, we have successfully taught approximately 20,000 people with disabilities to ride a conventional two-wheel bicycle.

The impact of learning to ride a bicycle independently, and our high level of success in helping people with disabilities accomplish this feat, continues to drive demand for our programs and fuel our growth.  Approximately 80% of the people who participate in our iCan Bike program ride a two-wheel bicycle independently (at least 75 feet with no assistance) by the end of our five-day program while attending for only 75 minutes each day! The remaining 20% make tremendous progress towards this goal and leave our programs accompanied by parents and/or siblings trained as ‘spotters’ to pick up where we leave off!

We continue expanding our flagship iCan Bike program throughout North America and also plan to pilot an iCan Swim program… stay tuned! View our Brochure

    We’re Seeking a National Sponsor!

    Given that we get more media coverage than we know what to do with (as evident from the many TV News videos of our iCan Bike program presented below) and would benefit greatly from having more support and outreach, we’re currently searching for an organization interested in becoming our national sponsor. Anyone interested in this great opportunity to support our cause, and get some great media coverage as our national sponsor, should e-mail our Executive Director, Lisa Ruby, at lisa@icanshine.org!

    We Need Donated Vehicles!

    We would be just spinning our wheels without reliable pick-up trucks to tow our trailers filled with adapted bike equipment around North America to conduct our iCan Bike programs. Because our vehicle costs are about $100,000 annually, it would make a huge difference to our organization if we received donated reliable pick-up trucks (preferably with towing capacities of at least 5,000 lbs).

    Frankly, we will take ANY donated truck or car which we can sell and apply the proceeds of which towards acquiring a reliable truck for towing our trailers of adapted bike equipment. This donation would directly empower us to continue transporting our adapted bike equipment to cities across North America while improving the quality of lives of thousands of people with disabilities each year!

    Donating your used vehicle is super easy… because we will come to your home or business to retrieve it! Donors receive a receipt for the market value of the donated vehicle for personal tax deduction purposes.

    If you want to make a difference by donating your used car or truck to iCan Shine, please e-mail Jeff at jeff@icanshine.org!
