My name is Chloe and I would like to ride a bike all by myself. The next summer I want to ride a bike with my brother with no help. Can you please help me get my Big girl bike? Pretty, Pretty Please.
Thank you, Chloe
Dear Athletes Helping Athletes,
Hello, everyone! We are enclosing a beautiful picture of our daughter Chloes Ises on her new 'Reha Partner' therapy bicycle that your wonderful foundations funded for her. We have taken her outdoors for bike ride as much as good weather permits. She is so very proud of herself. She has the biggest smile in the world when she is riding her bike. Actually, she is feeling so secure on her bike that she tells us to please let go of the rear handle bar, she says, 'I can do it by myself'. Believe it or not, she can ride her bike all by herself for about ½ block. - It is amazing.
We want to thank you once again for funding this bicycle for our daughter. She feels and looks so independently free when riding her bike. It's also great to hear her say words that we thought we'd never hear her say, like, 'let's go ride our bikes'. Thank you - a thousand times - thank you. We appreciate this from the bottom of our heart. Please remember that you have made a difference in the life of a child - our child. When you see the children riding bikes throughout the summer, keep in mind that you helped a little girl accomplish something that she thought she'd never be able to do on her own--- ride a bike.
