RICHMOND, Va. – Twenty more children received a brand-new bike on Sunday thanks to the generosity of one organization.

The adaptive bikes are custom made for each child based on their ability.

U.S. Army veteran James Howard started Richmond Empowering Abilities for Children with Cycles or REACHcycles after he medically retired from the Army in 2010 after numerous combat injuries and a stateside swimming injury left him a quadriplegic.

Organizers said they are always raising money because each bike can cost between $400-$1200.
