In 2014, GoHawkeye partnered with ReActive Adaptations to sponsor a contest, open to anyone with a physical disability, for the coveted prize of a new custom built, off-road hand cycle. Entrants were asked to submit an essay detailing how they became disabled, obstacles they have had to overcome and how this bike would change their lives. The intent was to adapt the winning story into the next short film produced by GoHawkeye. DWHeadshot
