A young boy from Osseo, with cerebral palsy, was surprised with a bike by the members of his community on Thursday evening.
When you’re young, having a bike to ride is more than just fun, it’s provides a feeling of independence. Eleven-year-old Ajay Wilson longed for that feeling of freedom. “Right now he can’t just jump on a bike and go anywhere he wants with his friends because he can’t ride a bike,” said Carmen Wilson, Ajay’s mom. That’s why his mother entered him into an online contest for a chance to win a bike specially fitted for him.
It was the Michaela Noam Great Bike Giveaway of Friendship Circle, a non-profit organization that provides programs and support to the families of individuals with special needs. In the Great Bike Giveaway contest, bikes are donated and people with special needs compete in a couple ways, one is to receive the most votes in an individual category.
