Nonprofit gets special bike for Hudson toddler

Posted: Updated:

Keeping up with his brother.

One Hudson boy can now ride his bike with his family.

It's all thanks to the help of a nonprofit.

Two-year-old Cooper was born with Spina Bifida, a disorder that's affecting his ability to walk, breathe and swallow.

He couldn't ride the tricycle his twin brother was using.

That's when nonprofit AMBUCS pitched in to help. They raised money to get Cooper a new adaptive tricycle.

It would usually cost around 800 dollars, but he got it for free. 

Almost everyday, he gets to enjoy the same experience as his twin. 

AMBUCS does this for kids and adults all over the nation. 

But they don't have a chapter anywhere in Iowa. 

The non profit has an event this afternoon at AEA 267 in Cedar Falls. 

They'll be fitting kids for new adaptive bikes and teaching people more about what they do. 

AMBUCS says one of their goals is to eventually start a chapter in Iowa once they have enough people who can help out with the program.
