VIDEO: Bike Training 'Can Open Up Windows' for Special Needs Students

Parents and volunteers of Lose the Training Wheels gave their input on the fifth annual event in New Lenox.

The fifth annual Lose the Training Wheels 2012 event took place at the gym from June 11 through 15.  

During this program, 35 students with disabilities attempted to learn how to ride a bike without aid.

Nice interview! I also volunteered for this event for the first time this year! It is a very rewarding experience! The joy of seeing their faces, when the accomplish their goals of riding a bicycle is priceless! And they have so much fun doing it!
