This year we will be riding for 6-year old Hunter Nehring of Holmen.
When he was 11 months old, Hunter was diagnosed with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a severe and often fatal, genetic disorder. SMA causes muscles essential for vital functions to progressively weaken.
Hunter got a power wheelchair two years ago and loves the mobility! The family enjoys lots of walks and he can’t wait to pull his baby brother’s wagon around this summer. While Hunter mainly gets his nutrition through his feeding tube, he can still enjoy his favorites on occasion… chips and chicken noodle soup!
Hunter loves being in Kindergarten and his friends at Prairie View Elementary in Holmen. He is silly and very smart! Before he heads to school each day, Hunter does respiratory therapy with four different machines to attempt to ward off pneumonia that Hunter gets very easily.
Once again this year we will be Riding for a Reason with Big Bikes for Little Tikes. Hunter’s wish is to go on a “Spongebob Cruise” with his family! With your help, we can make this wish come true.
Help us help this wonderful local child with Big Bikes for Little Tikes 2010.
