GOFUND for disabled man’s stolen trike

Subscriber Post by mikiervi on December 3rd, 2016 at 10:48 am

As Portland resident Dan Cadmus’s Parkinson condition has progressed the last several years, his primary mobility has been via his custom trike. The trike was stolen on Thanksgiving. His story is portrayed in this link to a Channel 2 news item from last week. There is also, at the bottom of the text article a link to a GOFUNDME account to raise money for a new trike and a secure bike storage locker. Thank you.

    Good news–the trike has been recovered. From PPB:

    “Update: Stolen Recumbent Tricycle Recovered – 02/01/17

    “A recumbent tricycle that was stolen last November from a man with disabilities has been recovered and returned to him. Portland Police Burglary Detective Sergeant Troy Pahlke received a phone call from the Portland Union Gospel Mission informing him the tricycle had been found and was currently at the Union Gospel Mission.

    “On November 25, 2016, the Police Bureau received an online report regarding the theft of a recumbent trike belonging to Dan Cadmus. Mr. Cadmus utilized the recumbent tricycle to assist him in navigating through his neighborhood, due to limited mobility.

    “Sergeant Pahlke assisted Union Gospel Mission in contacting Mr. Cadmus and they reunited him with his tricycle this morning.

    “The Portland Police Bureau wants to thank all those at the Union Gospel Mission for their assistance in reuniting Mr. Cadmus with his tricycle. “
