Keep it Real Wednesday

June 7, 2023


Yesterday we delivered a blessing bike to a remarkable family.

Gabe and Ashley and their 3 children, one with a serious health condition named Weston. Gabe is a marine veteran and works long hours to care for his family.

It was Weston’s grandma Lona that learned of the Blessing Bike through a shared social media post and contacted us about a bike.  She wanted to help her darling grandson Weston who is only 5 years old and losing the ability to ambulate.

Grandma Lona told me a story of one of her grandchildren learning to ride a bike while Weston could only sit and watch and how it broke their hearts.

Yesterday that changed and now they can all ride together.

And we have YOU to thank.


YES!!!  YOU!!

We are but a small group of volunteers but together with you, we are a mighty force.  We don’t have a marketing team, a big budget, or lots of resources to help spread the word of the Blessing Bike but we do have YOU.

YOU are the ones to share our story.  YOU are the ones to refer people to us. YOU are the ones who enable us to continue to help others.

So, take a good long look at these smiles and pat yourselves on the back.

You are a HUGE part of them, and we are grateful.

(And A BIG WARM BLESSING BIKE WELCOME TO WESTON AND HIS BEAUTIFUL FAMILY. It was impossible to just pick one picture – enjoy ALL of them.   Even a random thunderstorm during delivery could not put a damper on this JOY).
