The 2019 iCan Shine Bike Camp is back in Roanoke at the Spectrum Sports Academy.
The week long camp helps children and adults with disabilities learn how to ride a conventional two wheel bicycle.
“It’s a door that I thought may never open and so it makes you think how many other doors have we thought, might be closed to us but can be open,” said Susan Young, a parent whose child attended the camp. “It means that this is something that he can do with his friends. It’s a life long skill.”
There are five sessions a day that are 75 minutes long. Each student stays with the same two volunteers throughout the week to get them confident on a bicycle.
The camp concludes on Friday, July 5.
