Radio Show #379 – “Bob The Bike Man”
Does It Again!

Once again, Bob “The Bike Man” Charland comes to the fore and helps a youngster with special needs.

This time, at the Brookings School.

Bob became aware of a young Somali boy, whose battle with his own health issues has deprived him of the use of a conventional bicycle.

Which is all Bob ever needs to know.

Into the workshop, and out with a bike customized to this young man’s needs!

The entire story, and what this bicycle meant to the boy, is included in this special program.

Bob is also the recipient of a terrific honor from the Red Cross, and has even had a Police horse named after him!
