My name is Jack Nelson. I am 9 years old. I ride my handcycle at home but it is too hard to go up hills and it always breaks. I would love a new bike to ride with my friends and so I can do bike racing.
Dear Athletes Helping Athletes:
I'm writing you to let you know that Jack Nelson received the handcycle that you ordered for him. He received it the beginning of July and there hasn't been many days that Jack hasn't rode it. It is so easy for him to transfer between the bike and the wheelchair, and he picked up the braking and the gear shifting right away. He started out by practicing in our neighborhood and now the family is going on long bike rides out of the neighborhood. He is amazed all the places he can go now.
I want to take this time to thank you and everyone involved with Athletes Helping Athletes. Ina world where you hear mostly negative talk it's great to have an organization that touched us so personally in such a positive manner.
Jack will never forget the opportunity that you provided him and we will sing your praises every chance we get.
Jamie Nelson, father of Jack Nelson
