The YMCA Challenger program is built to help children and young adults with special needs improve social skills and physical fitness by allowing them to participate in various sports and social opportunities. YMCA of Greater Kansas City Senior Director of Adaptive Programs, Raegan Schurr, immediately thought of 14-year-old Daniel Schnacker when she heard of the Bikes for Kids program. Daniel is not only a participant in the Y Challenger program, but he takes extra time to volunteer and help younger children involved with the program. “Daniel is one heck of a guy,” says Raegan, “He loves to play hard at sports, and show others how to play well…He was an outstanding volunteer and player for the YMCA Challenger Baseball program this summer!” Raegan also said Daniel always encourages others and leads by example.
Daniel is a perfect example of the type of kids you can nominate to win a free bike this summer from Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys’ Bikes for Kids program! Although shy at first, Daniel was so excited to receive his bike, helmet, and lock this morning. We can’t wait to surprise more deserving kids with bikes this summer!
The Bikes for Kids program provides one bicycle to a deserving child each week of summer, until late September. Bikes for Kids is asking parents, teachers, caregivers, and loved ones to recognize a child who has made a difference in the life of someone else by nominating them to receive a free bicycle from Midwest Cyclery, compliments of Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys. Midwest Cyclery will be donating a helmet and a lock to each winner. While there are no specific guidelines on what makes a nominee deserving of a new bike, we encourage nominators to think about any kind things that the child has done for others, or how the child has positively impacted his or her family, friends, community, or classroom.
