Last night, the Ann Arbor Center for Independent Living’s recreation program’s trailer was stolen. Apart from the loss of the trailer that is used for the IRide, it contained about $30,000 of sports and recreation equipment. Most of the hand-cycles and tricycles that are used with the recreation program are now gone along with gas grills for barbecues, all our tennis equipment, a basketball wheelchair, the canopy tents and all the IRide support equipment, and much more.
This theft has put many of the Ann Arbor CIL summer recreation programs on hold. Staff has been collecting the equipment for over ten years through a series of grants and donations, and it will be hard to replace.
