Caroline and Rose Lubbe, 13, were awarded with brand-new bikes from Midwest Cyclery, compliments of KCAIA. The twin sisters were nominated by the Senior Director of Adaptive Programs for the YMCA of Greater Kansas City, Raegan Schurr. Rose and Caroline have been volunteering for the YMCA Challenger program, which helps children and young adults with special needs improve social skills and physical fitness, for the past three years. “Caroline and Rose juggle school, homework and their own activities to make sure they are available for Challenger,” says Raegan, “These two have a knack for engaging with individuals with special needs. They also help mentor and support friends while at school and in their community. Rarely do they miss the chance to help out for our seasons: Baseball, bowling, soccer, flag football, basketball and court sports. They are amazing!!”
Caroline and Rose were very surprised to receive their bikes, as they thought they were going to watch one of the Challenger program participants receive a bike to show support. It gave us great joy to see their smiles after receiving their bikes. We can’t wait to give more bikes to kids like Caroline and Rose!
Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys' Bikes for Kids
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.
