Letter to the editor: Community support make iCan Bike camps successful

August 10, 2015

To the editor:

I would like to give thanks to volunteers and sponsors for making Baldwin iCan Bike Camp a success. Your financial assistance, caring and hard work has made a tremendous, lasting and positive impact on the lifelong fitness, confidence and the new skill of independently riding a two-wheeled bike for 60 campers, their families and friends. Thank you so much for helping Baldwin iCan Bike during our 2014 and 2015 camps.
