MADISON COUNTY, Ky. (LEX 18)– Early last month, the custom bike that Richmond Woman Amy Krome uses to raise money for charity was stolen from her home.  Just a few days ago, a new bike was delivered to her.

Krome has Cerebral Palsy, which limits her mobility. She gets around day-to-day using an electric wheelchair, but two years ago, her brother bought her a custom bike that gives her the opportunity to be on the go.

The custom set of wheels is what she used to raise money for her charity called “Angel on the Move.” The annual charity bike event at Legacy Trail raises money and awareness for disabled veterans.

“It’s like someone ripped my heart out and stomped on it. The bike was basically the only thing, I feel, is the only thing I can use just like everyone else,” Krome had told LEX 18 after the bike was stolen.

Since then, multiple people have stepped up to raise money for her, including her high school graduating class.

“Angel on the Move is back in business!” Krome said.

She said that she will keep this new bike in her home.

“I’m not giving whoever took the other one a chance to take my joy away,” said Krome.
