I remember the excitement the day my kids first got their bikes. And the pride I felt at being a part of that rite of passage to independence. To be part of that excitement and pride thirty times this past December was a highlight of the year for staff at NACE. All thanks to Bikes4Kids and the Ham Lake Lions for providing 30 bikes for 30 children whose families needed assistance from NACE in 2012.
To make the happiness of giving away restored bikes with new helmets and safety/care manuals even better was the moment a young boy returned his bike to NACE. He had received a 2nd bike for Christmas and wanted some other child to get the same experience as him. What a joyful moment! We at NACE give a big and heartfelt “Thank you” to Bikes4Kids and the Ham Lake Lions for including NACE and helping make the 2012 holiday season better for 30 kids in need in our community.
