Review for National Interscholastic Cycling Association, Berkeley, CA, USA
Our son has participated in a local NICA chapter in Chapel Hill, NC for the past two years. To say he was a beginner last year would be an understatement! After the first practice we were sure he would throw his hands up and never get on his mountain bike again. But through the dedicating coaches and team members, he felt encouraged to keep trying and was probably the most improved kid on the team last year. He willingly signed up to participate again this year and has truly enjoyed the experience. He loves nature and being out in the woods on his bike has become one of his favorite activities. He has also gained confidence about riding around town with friends and trying new things that are at first challenging for him. I can't say enough wonderful things about the dedicated coaches for our local NICA group--they encourage him to push himself and remind him of how far he has come. And we love the emphasis on being students first, and athletes second. I honestly think he concentrates better on his school work after a ride! NICA is an amazing group of professionals who take biking seriously but keep it super fun for the kids.

We invited Miraclefeet to our 2014 Giving Party and were amazed at the work they're doing internationally. It's incredible how this simple piece of medical technology is literally changing and saving lives around the globe. They make it possible for children to not only walk, but to run, to work and to live full lives.
