My name is Jessica Rogers and I just want to thank you for making my Christmas all the better by giving me an awesome blue handcycle. I love the fact that I can go just as fast as my sisters. I think that this might have been the best Christmas ever the organization AHA made it all the better. I really love that it has a gearshift also because my other bike didn't have one and it was getting old anyway. Thanks again for the wonderful bike.
Dear Athletes Helping Athletes,
Here are some pictures of Jessica receiving her new handcycle on Christmas day. I hope the ear-to-ear grin conveys how surprised and excited she was to receive it. I was amazed by the rapid response to our grant application and the personal attention given to size and selection of the handcycle that you provided us. The pre-Christmas deliver was an added bonus (We managed to get the box into the basement before Jessica saw anything) after that; all I had to do was pull it out of the box and it was ready to use. There were no Christmas Eve assembly nightmares to contend with in this case.
Jessica took to the new bike like a duck to water and it was set ideally for her small size. In spite of some rather cold temperatures, she had been out on the bike daily, increasing her distance each day. Her siblings are worn out trying to keep up with her.
I really don't have words to express how thankful we are for your generosity. In this case, what seemed to be too good to be true was actually true. Thank you for making a Christmas to Remember.
