A hero is defined as a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. No matter your Trips for Kids' chapter size, you and your team/volunteers are all heroes to us. Each time you introduce, encourage, and/or challenge a young person to ride, repair or build a bicycle you impact a life. You make a young person think, focus, dream and believe in themselves. That may not be the reason you started your chapter, but whether or not you know it, you do this every time you hit the dirt or get your hands greasy.
It takes courage to teach a child something they may not be familiar with. When a child experiences their first "aha" moment, finally realizing their independence through a bicycle, that is an achievement. Whether you run your chapter full-time, part-time, or just for a few hours a week, month or year, YOU are positively affecting a young person's future which is quite a noble quality.
