CUDAHY, Wis. (September 2019): Alex Haug suffers from a life-threatening condition, and he’s happiest being outdoors and exploring nature trails on his bike. His current one was in bad shape, and he wished for a new mountain bike. Kids Wish Network, a children’s charity that grants wishes for kids with life-threatening illnesses, purchased Alex a TREK X-Caliber 8 Mountain Bike with a bike lock and lights from Wheel & Sprocket (Franklin) at a discounted rate. They also included a one-year service plan for any possible repairs. Kids Wish Network arranged for Alex’s new bike to be personally delivered to his home. He was ecstatic when he saw his new bike and immediately hopped on to take it for a spin.
“Alex will have so much fun exploring on his new mountain bike,” said Kids Wish Network Executive Director Tam Lai.
