Rick, a volunteer “pilot” with Portland Wheelers (Portland, ME)

 “I’m motivated to give back to those with disabilities because my mother and father-in-law have Parkinson’s.  I decided to be a volunteer ‘pilot’ with Portland Wheelers, providing bicycle rides to those who are unable to ride. A story I’ll never forget was when I and another volunteer took a husband and wife, who were both 88 years old, on a bicycle ride. As I pushed the wife past her husband, he yelled, ‘Don’t let them pass us!’ The couple laughed hysterically and continued the race – they were happy as kids!”
