Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, One of the Safest in the Area with No Cars/Motorized Vehicles, Now the Only South Florida Beach Area Providing Special Needs Equipment Rentals

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. May 16, 2014 Ensuring that everyone, including individuals with special needs, can enjoy a beautiful day at the renowned Hollywood Beach Broadwalk in Hollywood, Fla., Special Needs Group, Inc. (SNG) www.specialneedsgroup.com recently partnered with Sun & Fun Cycles. SNG, the leading global provider of mobility and special needs equipment, now offers its high-quality wheelchairs, mobility scooters and Joy on the Beach (JOB) wheelchairs/lounges at Sun & Fun Cycles on the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk.

Florida's only oceanfront Broadwalk, the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk is a 2.5-mile, 27-foot wide path where cars and motorized vehicles are not allowed. The partnership between SNG and Sun & Fun Cycles now makes it the only beach area in South Florida offering special needs equipment and bike rentals, empowering individuals with special needs.

In business for nearly 30 years, Sun & Fun Cycles is the sole Hollywood Broadwalk bike rental shop to offer special needs equipment rentals.

“Twenty percent (63 million) of Americans have a disability, and approximately 10 million aged 15 and older use a walking aid such as a cane or walker. This group includes ‘slow walker’ individuals,” said SNG President and CEO Andrew J. Garnett. “Our partnership with Sun & Fun Cycles allows these individuals to enjoy the beauty of the Hollywood Beach Broadwalk, enjoying fun recreational activities with the help of special needs equipment.”

At Sun & Fun Cycles, special needs equipment and bicycles can be rented for 30 minutes up to a week. It is open seven days a week from 9 a.m.–11 p.m.
