Lenore Koppelman had a professional conference to attend in Florida last week and decided it would be a perfect opportunity to visit Universal Orlando Resort with her husband and 9-year-old son, Ralph. After the ride broke down, Ralph collapsed in frustration. But as Koppelman was trying to get Ralph up from the ground to protect him, something unexpected happened.

Six years ago, Krystal Jo’s Diner owner Tony Tucker gave 25 bikes away to kids in Flint, Michigan. This year, during what has become an annual event, more than 1,200 kids will be given a bike. Tucker was trying to figure out how he could give back to his community when he noticed kids weren’t outside doing anything, and there wasn’t anything outside for them to do. Bikes were his answer.
