First ever Bikes for Kids winner, Jonathan Pierson, is no ordinary six-year-old. After attending a school for children with learning disabilities, his parents discovered that Jonathan only has 30% of his hearing, but he has never let that stand in his way. Jonathan’s family says his hearing disability never caused him to get angry or discouraged, it only made him try harder. Jonathan’s family also says he always sees the good in people. “He doesn’t know an enemy, he doesn’t know what ‘mean’ is about, all he sees is good in everybody,” says Jonathan’s aunt.
To reward Jonathan for being a role model child, Kansas City Accident Injury Attorneys awarded him with a brand new bike, helmet, and lock from Midwest Cyclery. The story was covered by KCTV5 News.
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.
