Cooperative employees help create confidence on two wheels

Employees from area Touchstone Energy Cooperatives volunteered at the iCan Bike Camp, which helps kids with disabilities learn to ride a two-wheeled bike.

 

Research shows many people with autism and Down syndrome never experience the thrill of independently riding a two-wheel bicycle. But local organizations and volunteers are committed to change that.

This summer, employees from Basin Electric and local Touchstone Energy Cooperatives volunteered their time to help Bismarck-area kids gain their confidence on two wheels.

The iCan Bike Camp was hosted by Designer Genes, a Bismarck-based Down Syndrome support network. Watch the video.
