After following their inspirational journey on YouTube, the LAPD Cycling team reached out to Justin and Francis to support them in their efforts. Sport and being active is an integral part Justin and Francis’ lives but for children and young adults with impairments the access to being active is filled with barriers. Get Kids Going! provides funds to help with the costs of the bespoke equipment needed to partake in sport. This is not just about being active but is an essential part of physical and mental wellbeing.
