Christian is just doing what he likes… riding, but that wasn’t just something he could do for a month straight. Not long ago he’s last bike got stolen. That was a gift for his 8th birthday.
But he left it on the side of his house one day… and never saw it again.

“It was so good to see the smile on his face again because he was so bummed out for not having the bike.”Christina Mitchell, Mother

“He came in the house, and said, ‘I’m so impressed, I’m so impressed they did that.'”Christina Mitchell, Mother
“Thank you for giving me the gift. It’s truly amazing.”Christian Mitchell, 8-year-old-boy
