NAPLES, Fla - Forty disabled children are all smiles after one organization gave many of them their very first bicycle.
The national organization, AMBUCS, donated forty therapeutic trikes to local disabled children at the Naples Beach Hotel today.
The custom bikes cost thousands of dollars each, but were handed out today free of charge.
"Its going to allow her to 1st of all be a normal child with the bike, riding with the other kids. also it's a wonderful form of exercise to really get her legs going", said one mother.
Pepsi has also issued a $50,000 grant to the organization to purchase an additional hundred tricycles.
