St. Louis (KSDK) - The day dad took off the training wheels is a memory for most of us; a rite of passage, so to speak.
"Let's get your other foot in first," Bill Naucke said helping a cyclist.
And these days thanks to Delta Gamma Center for Children with visual impairments, kids like Casey Scott can also experience what the rest of us take for granted.
"I enjoyed it a lot and it was very fun," Scott said.
"They started the agency to provide educational services for infants and children too young for public school," explained Debbie Naucke, Executive Director.
Several years ago, however, parents came back to the agency with an idea.
"And asked us to start a support and recreation group for them," Naucke said.
So they started GRADS, Group Recreation and Developmental Support.
"We went ice skating, we do different things," Scott said.
"In that first year we did a cycling event with them, the kids fell in love with cycling and really begged us to start a tandem cycling team," Naucke said.
They've been pedaling ever since.
"I appreciate their time they put out so we can actually be able to do other things we wouldn't be able to do," Scott added.
It's a reminder that when we help each other anything is possible.
You can help raise money for the Delta Gamma Center by riding in the Ride to Unite. It's Saturday at 10 a.m. at Francis Park. The course will take you through St. Louis Hills. It costs $30 to participate.
