A Paso Robles family is thanking the community for supporting their daughter's need for a special adaptive bike.

Logan Lowe, 4, was diagnosed with a rare genetic disorder known as Angelman Syndrome when she was just 8 months old.

Logan takes daily medication for seizures and attends physical therapy once a week.

In February, Logan's family launched a campaign to win her an adaptive bike to help with her physical therapy.

On the fundraising website her parents wrote, "This [bike] would help her to be more involved with outside activity along with strengthening her leg muscles so she can one day walk on her own."

Thanks to community donations, Logan will receive the adaptive bike.

Monday afternoon, Logan's mom Kayla wrote on Facebook: "I am blown away! And I just have to let you all know how amazing you are! Logan’s bike has been fully funded thanks to many of you! We are so humbled and appreciative to all of you who donated and shared so Logan can have this amazing opportunity! We thank you from the bottom of our hearts!"

A total of $3,800 was donated for Logan's bike.

The neurological disorder affects about 1 in 15,000 people and Logan is one of three known cases on the Central Coast.
