James rides his bike every chance he gets and has the biggest smile on his face. He is just beaming as he rolls by exclaiming, “I go fast! I’m riding a bike!” James is almost four years old and receiving an adaptive bike has absolutely changed his life. James rides every day he can, as soon as he gets home from school at lunch time, for an average of five hours. He often rides with his twin brother Charlie until it is dark and I have to tell him, “We need to put the bike up.” It is one of the main activities of his day. Because of this, James has gained enough muscles to be able to use crutches instead of a walker.
I had the most amazing experience with GIVE 5 and for them to help children, who can’t otherwise ride, to get bikes is beyond awesome! ~ Liz Stillwell
