A Brooklyn nonprofit was honored for how it helps children with disabilities.
Adapt Ability works to make customizable adaptive bicycles for children with disabilities, free of charge.
The nonprofit is one of the winners of the fifth annual "Make it Awards" program, which was created by the Knicks and Square Space.
On Friday, a $30,000 grant and a one-year subscription to Square Space was awarded to Adapt Ability.
The group was also featured on MSG Networks to help spread the word about the work its team members do.
Founder Sandra Alfonzo says their work has changed the lives of many people with disabilities and this award will help them continue to keep their products free.
Adapt Ability was one of four businesses honored by the program, and the only one from Brooklyn.
It was founded five years ago, and it already has a long waitlist of customers from across the country.
