Recently, we brought you Cora's story. A local girl unable to ride bikes with her family because of a disability. Thanks to the generosity of the Mansfield High School Shop Class, that dream turned into a reality. It's a moment they've waited years for, and at times thought would never come.

Cora, her mom, dad and sister Catie are riding bikes together once again. Her "Maiden Voyage"  took them up and down the bike trail here in Mansfield.

Shop teacher Mike Schlupp and a few others were there to cheer her on. They were happy to see her enjoying her new bike and spending time with family. Dameion Carver, A student in Mr. Schlupp's shop class says it "warms his heart" to see the progression of this project.

Cora and family couldn't be more excited, and we're sure they have many more family bike rides planned.
